CELTIC SET TO LAND POLISH DEFENDER

Scottish giants Celtic are looking to sign Polish defender Robert Gumny according to reports. The 20-year-old recently made his international appearances with Poland during the last international break and looks set to move to Scotland in the summer.

Gumny has emerged as one of the surprise starters for Lech Poznan this season and has made 10 appearances this season for the Polish outfit. He has been impressive for the club with his ability to make excellent crosses one of his key attributes.

It is understood that his performances have impressed Celtic and the club are looking to pay a transfer fee of £4.3 million for the defender in the summer. This is apparently below the asking price of £6.8 million demanded by Poznan. The Polish club are looking to embark on a huge summer outlay after a disappointing season and want to use the sale of the player to finance the transfers.

If Gumny makes the move it would make him the most expensive transfer export in the Polish league beating the previous record held by Southampton centre back Jan Bednarek.

The right-back position has been a problem for Celtic this season as there have been inconsistent performances. Current options Jeremy Toljan is currently on loan from Borussia Dortmund and expected to return to the German club in the summer while Mikael Lustig is primed to make a return to Sweden.

Celtic have endured a to psyturvy as the Scotland Champions have experienced some strange results this season while still managing to dominate in the league.

The departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester left a sour taste for the fans but this has not affected the team as they look set to win yet another league title.  They currently sit 13 points above second-placed Rangers with six games remaining in the season.
