Celtic transfer BLOW as 39-cap Italy international Mattia De Sciglio 'rejects' Parkhead move
Left-back opts against move to Scottish champions
Celtic have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of a new left-back.
Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio has reportedly rejected a move to the Scottish champions.
According to Italian journalist Nicolò Schira, an ‘expert’ in the transfer market, the 39-cap Italy international has passed on two offers with Celtic and Aston Villa keen.
De Sciglio cost Juventus a reported €12million in 2017 when they signed him from AC Milan. In just over three seasons at the Turin giants he has played just 62 times.
However, he has won three Serie A titles during that time plus a Coppa Italia.
Celtic are still in the market for a left-back and have been linked with a host of names, from Charlton’s Alfie Doughty to Dane Casper Højer Nielsen.
The club have until Monday to finalise their business ahead of the transfer market closing.
