Celtic should move for George Honeyman

Celtic recently confirmed the signing of West Brom winger Oliver Burke on a loan deal until the end of the season. However, if the Hoops are to hold off the challenge of Steven Gerrard’s Rangers and sustain their charge to an eighth successive Scottish league title crown, then Brendan Rodgers must bolster and revitalise his attacking contingent further.

What’s the word?

The likes of Scott Sinclair and Leigh Griffiths have stagnated this season and the Bhoys are in need of a boost.

The arrival of Burke is a good start, but the Glasgow giants need more, especially if they’re to go far in the Europa League this season. Rodgers should therefore still be seeking to bring further attacking additions to Celtic Park this month.

With that in mind, Celtic ought to seriously consider making a surprise swoop for Sunderland No.10 George Honeyman.

Potential for a swap deal?

The attacking-midfielder is a Black Cats academy product and loves the Wearside club who he has been with since the age of ten. However, the 24-year-old is a far better player than the League One standard he is currently plying his trade at and at this stage in his career he really needs to make the step up that his talent deserves.

Honeyman has been in fine form for Jack Ross’ side so far this season and is ready for a greater challenge. 

What’s more, Sunderland’s interest in signing Celtic winger Lewis Morgan on loan – as reported by the Daily Star – could potentially open the door to the two clubs agreeing a swap deal of sorts, with Honeyman heading north of the border and Morgan joining the English outfit.

What do you think, Celtic fans, would Honeyman be a good signing?
