Celtic: Mohanad Jeahze transfer update emerges

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou overlooked a significant transfer overhaul at the Parkhead club during the previous summer transfer window.

Not only did the Hoops see a raft of new faces make their way to Celtic Park either on permanent or loan deals, but the club also cashed in on a number of players that made moves elsewhere.

Now that the Bhoys are on the verge of securing the SPFL title, it seems as though things have been going on behind the scenes at Lennoxtown in regards to one potential transfer deal that could take place during the next summer window.

What’s the news?

According to a recent report from the Daily Record, Celtic sent scouts to watch Hammarby full-back Mohanad Jeahze in action against Malmo on Monday as their interest in the defender intensifies.

The Hoops have been linked with a move for the left-back in recent weeks and now seem to very much have him on their radar in terms of a potential summer transfer move.

Celtic fans will be buzzing

In terms of what the Celtic scouts saw from the defender in Monday’s 0-0 draw against Malmo, Jeahze ended up making two tackles, one interception and won three of the four duels he was involved in.

Not only did he show what a capable defensive figure he is, but he also made one key pass for his side and earned himself a solid overall match rating of 7.1/10 from SofaScore.

Do you think Celtic will sign new players in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at the season as a whole, the 25-year-old has the second-highest number of tackles (9) and crosses (25) for his side as well as the highest number of interceptions (14).

Taking all of this into account, it’s safe to suggest that a lot of Celtic fans will be delighted to hear that their club have sent scouts to watch Jeahze. Not only will the scouts have been left impressed with his display but it’s likely his all-action approach would be appreciated by supporters too.

If the club end up bringing the player to Celtic Park in the summer, this could kickstart yet another significant period of transfer business as Postecoglou will want his side to be as successful as possible moving forward.
