Agent of recently released Celtic winger Derk Boerrigter discusses his next move

USA Supporters

The Dutchman is keen on a move to the United States.

Celtic finally brought an end to Dutchman Derk Boerrigter’s career at the club this week. The player and the club agreed to a mutual termination of the winger’s contract at Parkhead after a difficult spell with the Bhoys.

Now his agent has been discussing his next step. Soren Lerby told the Scottish Sun that the Celtic flop is fully fit and training hard ahead of his next career move – with the USA looking enticing:

“Derk is fully fit now and training hard on his own.

“We are open minded about finding a new club, but we are focusing on getting a new team for the start of next season.

“He’s open to all offers. America would be a nice opportunity for him. Derk’s up for a new adventure.”

Whether a MLS team would be willing to take a gamble on the player might be up for debate but the second tier NASL is an emerging league with the likes of former Celtic star Georgios Samaras and Wilson Palacios, Niko Kranjcar and Kleberson all playing in it.

Boerrigter might find this the perfect next step.

Celtic paid a reported £3 million fee to sign the winger from Ajax back in 2013, according to ESPN.

It seemed a good deal considering the player's illustrious past. He had been in the Dutch national squad in 2011 and he had been a star for Ajax in 2011-12, scoring 10 goals in 23 appearances.

But he did have some injury trouble and a drop off in form which made Ajax sell him to Celtic so cheap and he never truly made a name for himself in Glasgow.
