Report: Emilio Izaguirre wants summer departure from Celtic to complete dream MLS transfer

Celtic Stands

Celtic left back Emilio Izaguirre is reportedly set to leave for Major League Soccer this summer.

According to a report from The Scottish Sun, Celtic left back Emilio Izaguirre is looking to leave the club this summer in order to join an American club.

Izaguirre, 29, is one of Celtic's longest-serving players in the current squad, having signed from Motagua in his native Honduras back in 2010.

The left back has now racked up more than 200 appearances for the Bhoys, winning four league tiles during a successful spell in Glasgow for the defender.

This season though, Izaguirre has lost his place as Celtic's first choice left back, with 18-year-old Kieran Tierney emerging through the club's ranks to take over under Ronny Deila.

Now, question marks surround Izaguirre's future at Celtic Park, and The Scottish Sun report that Izaguirre is keen to leave the club this summer in search of a move to America.

It's suggested that Izaguirre wants a 'dream move' to the States, having come close to joining an MLS club back in 2010, shortly before signing for Celtic.

STV reported six years ago that Toronto were trying to sign Izaguirre before he chose to join Celtic, and if Izaguirre gets his wish this summer, a move across the pond could finally be on the cards.
