the lad kerk from utrecht looks a right player, hope we can get him in. think it might be a struggle though, i would imagine there would be a few teams after him, but celtic are very interested. think we made a bid in january.

He supposedly wasn't interested in a move to scotland in January so can't see it happening, it'll take a helluva lot for us to sign first team players from leagues that are far better than the scottish premiership.

Of the names we've been linked with he excites me the most.

I think it just takes money Mark. It depends what other offers are on the table of course but we signed Jullien.

Just push the boat out for a season the rewards will be tenfold.

Agree Jim I just think it's harder to convince players to come to us who regularly play in decent leagues but every now and again we do manage pull off a signing as was with jullien from ligue 1, hopefully we do push the boat out and go for the lad from what I've heard he's supposed to be quick and skilful and likes to cut in from the left which is an area I think we can all agree needs strenghtening, I like elyounoussi and thought he did ok but I just don't think he's worth splashing out the money they're after for him when it could possibly go to other players who would cost less with higher potential.

Is this a real link or is it an imaginary link by SMSM who are just doing what they do every window and that is Link us with every Tom Dick and Harry so that some gullible fans will be devasted with the smaller number we actually sign.

He looks a player Mark from what I've seen. He didn't say he wouldn't move to us either by the way lads, he just said he wasn't thinking about a move until the summer and it's a dream of his to play in England. He might not get an offer from England and we could be a good stepping stone for him. We can certainly afford to pay him more than Utrecht too. That's what we need to do to attract better players. Pay more. We don't need any more squad players like Soro or Klimala we should be looking to improve the first XI. I'd still be happy with Mo but for one reason or another I don't think it will happen.

He's predominantly a RW but can play on the left or in the 10 role. Does look a player and was apparently a failed bid late in the last transfer window. Would definitely be first team material and not a project which is what we need.

JimTim, I read somewhere a few days ago that he allegedly said he wasn't interested in coming to Scotland as he thought he was already good enough to move to a higher standard league. We'll see but if he did say that then I think we should move on from him, the wages we would offer will soon be forgotten by him if he thinks he's better than what we can give him. HH.

"It never went through my mind to leave the club last month. I'm not at the stage where I was desperate to move or anything.

"After the end of the season, I will probably make the next step and it has always been a big dream of mine to play in English football. I think the way they play there would suit me. "

That's what he said in February Bob mate. If a red top can spin that into 'I don't want to move to Celtic' then good for them. Hey, maybe he doesn't, butbhe didn't say that. Or mention Scotland.

Truth is we never had a bid accepted for him. Utrecht owner said at the time:

"Lots of clubs asked about Kerk, but they never turned into actual offers. The only club who made a concrete bid was Celtic. I'm surprised we did not receive more interest to be honest because he is a player who is constantly a threat and involved in most of our goals. "

He did supposedly say it wherever it was that I read it, can't remember where though. Apparently that was the main reason the deal wasn't done in January. HH.

Well perhaps he did and I've missed that 👍. I thought it was often the case that a buying club would sound out interest with a player's agent before approaching their club though. If that was the case we wouldn't waste time with a bid. But I appreciate that might not always be the way deals work. I guess we'll just have to sit tight and see.
