Celtic should look to target Seamus Coleman, 10 years after trial period


Celtic should look to target Seamus Coleman, 10 years after trial period

The Irish defender has been struggling at Everton and may need a change of scenery.

Seamus Coleman has been a fantastic servant to Everton. The Irishman joined the club for an incredible £60,000 ten years ago from Sligo Rovers, as reported by the Liverpool Echo. It has gone down as one of the best bargains in Premier League history. However, he has struggled since suffering a horror leg break on international duty with the Republic of Ireland and many Everton fans feel it might be time for a new solution at right-back.

Coleman, therefore, might want to start considering moving on after his testimonial year.

So where could he go? One perfect location would be Celtic.

Celtic, in fact, had Coleman on trial themselves before Everton signed him. As he told the Irish Times, he spent a period on trial at Celtic prior to joining Everton.


Seeing how impressive a signing he has been for the Toffees, Celtic will no doubt regret that missed opportunity. However, if they were to swoop again this summer it could be a brilliant addition.

Celtic are struggling at right-back. Jeremy Toljan is only on loan whilst Mikael Lustig is out of contract in the summer.

If Everton decide it is time to push Coleman out then heading to Scotland could be a perfect next step. The reduced level would help him rediscover his best form and he would be able to enjoy some time in European football, something lacking at Everton in recent years.

Celtic, meanwhile, can right a wrong from a decade ago and bring in a real star for their right-back slot.
