According to reports in The Scottish Sun, Fulham have joined the race to sign Celtic centre-back Dedryck Boyata, and some Bhoys fans have been quick to react to the rumour.
Even though the defender only has a year left on his contract at Celtic Park, The Scottish Sun say that the Premier League new-boys are eyeing a big-money move for the 27-year-old, who has played three times for Belgium at the 2018 World Cup.
Brendan Rodgers is keen to keep the former Manchester City man in Glasgow and has offered him a new deal, but if he doesn’t accept then the club may well choose to cash in on him this summer.
Some Celtic supporters, others of whom have given their verdict on the future of a 21-year-old after the latest pre-season friendly, have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and many didn’t seem too upset at the prospect of losing the 6ft 2in man.
While one said “please be true”, another said “I don’t think he even wants to be here”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Please be true

I don’t even think he wants to be here. I’d bite their hand off at anything around £5m

Do u think @CelticFC are privately pissing themselves with the thought that other clubs are willing to part with cash to take Boyata off their hands
