Celtic linked striker Michiel Kramer admits he could stay at ADO Den Haag

The Dutchman recently saw a move to the UAE collapse.

Celtic have recently been linked with a move for Dutch striker Michiel Kramer. The 26-year-old was reportedly scouted by The Bhoys at a recent friendly against Veria, according to Omroep West, and liked what they saw, with a move seemingly a potential option.

Now the player has been talking about his future with ADO Den Haag, his current club. He is quoted as telling Voetbal International that he could now extend his deal with the club beyond its 2016 expiry, after a move to United Arab Emirates outfit Baniyas fell through.

He stated:

"We can always talk.

"Of course it was a disappointment, but I fully understand the position of ADO."

Kramer was all set to join Baniyas this month, even agreeing personal terms and passing a medical with the club. However, at the last minute, the two teams grew apart on the transfer fee and Kramer is back with the Eredivisie outfit for the time being.

Baniyas have since gone on to sign former Inter Milan and Parma striker Ishak Belfodil instead.

Kramer was the Eredivisie’s third top-scorer last season with 17 goals and it was reported in The National recently that the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford, Charlton and Kazakh side FC Astana had all been keen on the player.

Celtic recently signed Nadir Ciftci in the striking department but are believed to be keeping their options open for one more potential recruit in the position.

They currently have Leigh Griffiths as first-choice striker whilst Anthony Stokes and Stefan Scepovic are in reserve.
