Celtic are reportedly looking to bring in Tom Ince from Stoke City according to reports. The 28-year-old has eighteen months remaining on his deal at The Championship side and has been struggling for game time under Michael O’Neill.

Football League World are claiming that the Quadruple Treble winners are keen on a loan deal for the nomadic Ince. Ince, who’s dad Paul was a well-known name in English football, has also been linked with a move to Turkey.

Ince is hardly an inspiring name to be linked with, especially on loan. However, he would likely do well in Scotland especially with the chances that you would hope Celtic create.

Celtic are looking to rebuild after this car crash of a season and with Odsonne Edouard likely to leave the club either this window or in the summer. Albian Ajeti and Patryk Klimala have been underwhelming since joining the club. Leigh Griffiths is the wrong side of 30 and despite showing signs this season that he can contribute, his fitness concerns have cost us at times this year.

Edouard has been linked with a move away from Celtic with Leicester, AC Milan and even Real Madrid mentioned as being interested in the attacker. However, with Celtic’s poor form as well as a quiet season from the 23-year-old, the club may struggle to find the optimal fee for their prized asset.

The French striker has eighteen months remaining on his current Celtic deal and has been linked with a multi-million move from the club since the summer. However, now we have been given the clearest indication that the 23-year-old is planning for his future by joining Stellar Sports.
