Agent reveals Celtic star attracting Premier League interest will leave Scotland

Celtic star Nir Bitton could be the latest player to move south of the border to a lucrative Premier League deal, according to the Daily Mail.

The 24-year old midfielder has established himself as a top performer at Parkhead since moving from hometown club FC Ashdod in Israel two years ago.

He cost just £700,000 and is now thought to be valued at around £10m after penning a lengthy contract extension only last month.

Premier League outfit Sunderland are understood to be keen on the Israeli international despite their struggles towards the bottom of the league.

The player’s agent, Dudu Dahan has brokered several deals that have seen Hoops stars make the journey south in recent years.

‘We have had interest in Nir from English Premier League sides’, revealed the agent.

‘He will go to the Premier League, but in the summer, not in January.’

The Bhoys have previous in selling their big players for incredible profit to English sides over the years, including Victor Wanyama, Fraser Forster and Virgil Van Dijk to Southampton.

The Black Cats recently landed Celtic Park star Adam Matthews for around £2m in the summer, and new boss Sam Allardyce is thought to be keen on raiding the club again.
