Celtic “Monitoring” English Championship Attacking Midfielder

Celtic are monitoring the situation of Coventry City attacking midfielder Callum O’Hare, according to MailSport journalist Tom Collomosse. The 25-year-old’s contract with The Sky Blues expires at the end of this season.

Currently, O’Hare can talk to clubs outside of England and agree on a pre-contract that would see him join them for free when the campaign ends.

He missed the first quarter of 2023/24 due to a cruciate ligament injury but he has still managed to rack up 24 appearances in all competitions, registering nine goals and four assists in this time. A product of Aston Villa’s academy, O’Hare has spent his whole career in English football.

A move North of the border where he could win trophies and play in Europe may appease O’Hare, although La Liga sides are said to have watched him in his team’s 2-1 defeat to West Brom on Friday night where Mikey Johnston bagged a wonder goal.

Although head of first-team scouting and recruitment Mark Lawell and lead first-team scout Joe Dudgeon recently resigned, the Celts do seem active in the market. The pair are not the only people who manage recruitment at the club, and fans will be hoping plans are being put in place for the summer window regardless of the outcome of the title race.

The interest in a player who could be signed for free any time now potentially hints at this, but supporters are right to remain sceptical, particularly after how the left-back hunt in January ended.
