Agent admits Stefan Scepovic could leave Celtic after one season, Deila meeting planned

Stefan Scepovic could leave Celtic this summer, his agent has admitted.

The agent of Celtic striker Stefan Scepovic has told the Daily Mail that he wants talks with the club over the player's future in Glasgow.

Despite signing John Guidetti on loan from Manchester City last summer, the Bhoys also moved to land Serbian international Scepovic.

The 25-year-old arrived with a strong reputation having hit 23 goals in just 41 games for Spanish side Sporting Gijon, but has endured a frustrating debut season with Celtic.

With just four goals in 23 appearances, Scepovic has been the third choice striker behind Guidetti and Leigh Griffiths, and has played in just seven games since the start of 2015.

Unsurprisingly, his poor first season in Scotland has now triggered speculation over his future, with manager Ronny Deila admitting to The Scotsman that Scepovic was a 'project'.

Now, Scepovic's agent Mariano Aguilar has told the Daily Mail that he intends to have a conversation with Celtic over Scepovic's future, with Aguilar hoping for a clear decision ahead of the summer transfer window, even admitting that Scepovic could head back to Spain if Celtic do want him to leave.

"I hope to be able to visit Stefan and also speak to the people at Celtic," Aguilar said. "I spoke with the club in January but, at that time, they did not want to do anything."

"If all parties felt that a move would be the best thing, then I have no doubt there would be options for Stefan. He has a good reputation in Spain. But I don’t know if that is the situation. It is too early. Everything will depend on what the club want to do and how the player feels," he added.

Scepovic has been something of a misfit at Celtic so far, but he has shown his goalscoring ability elsewhere - and now it's up to Deila to decide whether he wants to keep the Serbian or let him leave this summer.
