Report: Christie set to leave Celtic for just £1m, three could depart on deadline day
The Record claim Ryan Christie is set to join Bournemouth for a bargain £1million fee – one of three players that could leave Celtic on deadline day.
Christie, 26, is in the final year of his Celtic deal. The 20-time Scotland star has been excellent already, but talks over a new Celtic deal have failed.
Clocking up 151 games for Celtic, the midfielder has produced 85 goal involvements. Scoring 41, Christie also has 44 assists in green and white.
The latest report claims that Christie has decided to opt against signing a new contract. Clearly, Celtic have chosen to sell, rather than keep him.
The Hoops could cash in now, or let him go for nothing in 12 months. They have decided to sell him for a bargain £1million fee.
Christie to Bournemouth: Celtic should be keeping midfielder
That is, if reports are true. According to the Record, Christie will only join Bournemouth for a bargain fee of just £1million. He is worth far more.
His stats prove that. Celtic are also about to sell Odsonne Edouard to Palace, for a fee that is expected to reach £16.25million, as per Fabrizio Romano.
So, for Christie to go for just £1million, is poor business from Celtic. For such a low price, the Hoops would be better off letting him go for nothing.
Celtic are now set to sell Edouard and Christie – while Leigh Griffiths could also depart on deadline day with Dundee looking to tie up a loan deal.
