Oliver Burke can get his career back on track with Celtic loan move

Oliver Burke is a loan target for Celtic, according to The Daily Record.

West Bromwich Albion boss Darren Moore has used Burke very sparingly this season and is willing to let him leave on loan.

Celtic could be about to take a punt on the out-of-sorts winger, who has failed to live up to his early career hype.

Burke joined West Brom in summer 2017 for a fee of £15m, as reported by The Daily Mail at the time.

But since moving to The Hawthorns, he has managed just 21 first-team outings. And only two of those have been starts in the league.

Celtic strike Premier Sports deal - is this the "additional value" we've been waiting for?

This season, there was hope that Burke would thrive in the Championship but he has featured just five times for the first-team.

The five-cap Scotland international scored in the EFL Cup against Luton Town but has failed to take that form into the league.

After impressing at Nottingham Forest and earning a move to Red Bull Leipzig, Burke was expected to reach the top.

But this move could end up being beneficial for all three parties as Celtic could get Burke back to his best.

The 21-year-old would have more opportunities to get game time, helping to develop his game and he can rediscover his form.

And he could help Celtic by providing them with some fresh ideas in their bid for the Scottish Premiership title.

If he does impress for the Bhoys, he could either earn a permanent switch or return to West Brom ready for action.
