Confirmed: Reported Celtic target Tom De Sutter agrees move to Turkish side Bursaspor

The Belgium international has made his move to Turkey.

Celtic are not believed to be done in their transfer pursuits this summer. The club are still in need of a central defender, even if Virgil van Dijk does stay at the club, as Jason Denayer left this summer. They also want a striker, to supplement the departure of former loanee John Guidetti.

One name that was recently thrown into the hat was that of Belgian forward Tom De Sutter.

It was reported at the start of the month that Celtic were ready to make a move for the Club Bruges striker. The Belgian paper Het Nieuwsblad reported that Celtic were ready to make a move for the player, if they made it to the Champions League Group Stage proper.

However, if they really ever were keen on the player, they no longer have a chance of signing him.

Giant hitman De Sutter has now found himself a new team, in Turkey. The 14-caps Belgian international joined Turkish outfit Bursaspor earlier today.

The move has seen him arrive at the club on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Do Celtic need another striker?

Another would certainly not go amiss. Leigh Griffiths looks sharp at the moment and the hope will be new signing Nadir Ciftci comes good. Other than that and Anthony Stokes and Stefan Scepovic do not fill fans with much confidence.

De Sutter is not the man to fill the void, but there is surely one out there.
