Celtic fans are disappointed to hear Erik Sviatchenko is set to leave the club

As reported by The Evening Times, Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko is on the brink of a permanent move back to his homeland after a successful loan spell at FC Midtjylland.

The paper say he is closing in on a four year deal at the Danish champions after falling out of favour at Celtic Park.

Sviatchenko moved to Glasgow in 2016 and went on to make 63 appearances for the Hoops, initially establishing himself as a first-choice centre-back.

That continued under Brendan Rodgers for a while, partnering Jozo Simunovic, until he was eventually replaced by the likes of Dedryck Boyata and Kristoffer Ajer.

He made just two appearances in the 2017/18 season before heading to Denmark in January, missing just one match on FC Midtjylland’s march to the Superliga title.

Fans aren’t exactly delighted to hear he is leaving with many feeling he deserved a second chance at Celtic Park.
