Huddersfield Town star Mathias Jorgensen "dosn't want to talk" about Celtic speculation

Huddersfield Town defender Mathias Jorgensen has claimed he “doesn’t want to talk” about a potential switch to Celtic.

The Danish internationalist has been linked with a move to Parkhead this summer (Scottish Sun). But there wasn’t much willingness to expand on the idea from the player himself.

Jorgensen managed 24 appearances last season. He was firmly out of favour at Huddersfield at the end of the campaign, and their relegation also won’t help. The Terriers signed the centre-back back in 2017, but after helping the club seal promotion, he’s quickly fallen down the pecking order.

And speaking to the Scottish Sun, the defender claimed he wants an end to his “boring situation” in England.

“I don’t really want to talk about that (Celtic).

“I know that when we come across the other side of this, I’m probably out of my boring situation in Huddersfield, and then when you do, you’re hopefully playing again.

“Of course, I would like a clarification as soon as possible, but it is also about being able to make the right choice. And there you sometimes have to put some cold water in the blood and see it so that we can make the right decision and have looked at all possibilities.”

Transfer fee unclear for Jorgensen

There hasn’t been any fee reported for the centre-back if Celtic decide to make the move. Jorgensen signed for Huddersfield two years ago for a reported £3.5m, however (The Sun).

At 29-years of age he provides some real, serious pedigree at the back too. Nicknamed Zanka, the defender made over 270 appearances for Danish outfit Copenhagen. He’s also been capped 22 times by Denmark and will take part in Euro 2020 matches over the coming days.

Any deal would therefore unlikely go through until after international business is over on June 10th. The Scottish transfer window doesn’t open until June 11th either. Zanka, however, would provide plenty of experience and pedigree if he came to Parkhead.

He would be the perfect replacement for Dedryck Boyata, although Celtic could still do with one more centre-back as cover if he does come in the door.

Just because the centre-back doesn’t want to talk about it doesn’t mean he isn’t interested. He’s clearly disillusioned with life at the Terriers, and now could be the perfect time for Celtic to swoop in.
