Revealed: Majority of Celtic fans wouldn’t support a loan move for Kieran Dowell in January

The majority of Celtic fans that answered our recent poll said that they would not support a loan move for Everton youngster Kieran Dowell in January.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has a large squad at his disposal already, but players such as Jonny Hayes and Lewis Morgan could be considered surplus to requirements and thus moved on in the winter transfer window.

Dowell though has started just two games for the Everton first team so far this season, both of which were in the League Cup against Rotherham and Southampton, but with the Toffees knocked out in a penalty shootout against their fellow Premier League side it looks as though the midfielder will have to return to the U23 side.

He could then be available for his second loan move away from Goodison Park, after spending last season in the Championship with Nottingham Forest.

Dowell quickly set about becoming a regular fixture in the first team, scoring 10 goals in the first half of the season. Unfortunately for him, when Aitor Karanka was brought in as manager he lost his place in the side.

The Everton youngster, who joined the club’s academy at age seven, did manage 38 Championship appearances for Forest though so has good first-team experience, but Celtic fans clearly don’t think he has the quality to improve their side in January.
