Celtic fans react on Twitter to Nir Biton transfer speculation

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Scottish champions but the club have denied the reports.

Celtic have denied reports linking Nir Biton with a move away from Parkhead next summer.

The midfielder's agent was claimed to have said Biton will leave the Bhoys for at least £10 million and move to the English Premier League.

But Celtic have now moved to deny that speculation on their official website - and rather swiftly - quoting the agent himself suggesting he didn't say anything of the sort.

The problem for Celtic fans, however, is that the rumour sounds all too familiar and believable. Indeed, the Hoops have a history of selling on some of their biggest players for big profits.

Victory Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and Fraser Forster are just some examples and many supporters fear the bank balance will once again be prioritised if the opportunity to sell Biton really does present itself.
