Celtic should make Championship man-mountain their number one summer target

Mike van der Hoorn is a rock of a central defender and is out of contract during the summer.

Celtic are on the cusp of a sensational triple treble this season and Neil Lennon is in temporary charge to oversee the success.

The Northern Irishman was named as the club’s interim boss following Brendan Rodgers’ decision to join Leicester City in February.

He has guided the Hoops ten points clear of Rangers and into the final of the Scottish Cup. Lennon’s future remains unclear, however, with other managers continuing to be linked.


One of those speculated is Swansea City boss Graham Potter. The likeable Brummie told Wales Online that he hasn’t had contact with the Scottish giants but the links are likely to keep rolling on.

Regardless of who is in charge during the summer, Celtic will probably enter the transfer market. If that man is Potter, he could return to his former club to land a key signing.

Mike van der Hoorn is out of contract during the summer (BBC Sport) and given the financial situation at Swansea, another one might not be forthcoming.

The uncompromising central defender is 26-years-old and has captained the Swans this season and is popular with the supporters.

Kristoffer Ajer will be Celtic’s number one central defender next season and the 20-year-old looks set for a bright future.

The experience of van der Hoorn alongside Ajer would make him a tremendous transfer for Celtic. The fact he wouldn’t command a fee would make him all the more appealing to the Hoops.
