Report: Celtic face disappointment over La Liga target

Ivan Saponjic may be having second thoughts over a move to Celtic.

Sport Witness carries a report from AS claiming that there is interest from the Scottish champions in the Atletico Madrid forward in this transfer window.

The new piece says that, while there is interest from both Celtic and Crystal Palace, the 23-year-old is now keen to stay in Spain.
