Rosenborg boss believes Birger Meling is going nowhere amid Celtic transfer links

Celtic have been linked with a move for the Norwegian left-back this week.

Rosenborg boss Eirik Horneland is confident that the club will be keeping all their players at the club despite interest from Celtic in left-back Birger Meling. 

Speaking to TV2 after the club’s exit from the Champions League this week, the manager stated his belief that nobody was likely to be coming in or out of the club before the transfer window shuts on September 2nd.


“There is no one on the way in and no one on the way out. There are a few days left, so I think it (the squad) will be the way it looks now.”

 

That would appear to include Meling, although he did also appreciate a deal that was financially adequate could see one of his players leave Trondheim.


“Should that happen (a sale), it is because it is profitable to sell. We sit on that control ourselves, so I think it will be quite as it looks now.”


Celtic are on the hunt for a new left-back before the transfer window closes. Kieran Tierney and Emilio Izaguirre both left Celtic this summer and Neil Lennon needs reinforcements in the role.

As reported by The Herald yesterday, Meling remains a transfer option for Celtic along with Kilmarnock’s left-back Greg Taylor. 

Celtic’s chances of signing Meling did appear to improve this week following the Norwegian side’s Champions League qualifying loss to Dinamo Zagreb. 

However, speaking to Norwegian publication VG after the game, the 10-cap international stated he had ‘heard nothing’ about a potential transfer from his agent.
