Celtic winger Marian Shved is on the verge of leaving the club, his father has told The Scottish Sun this weekend.
Shved was signed in January 2019 during the Brendan Rodgers era before officially becoming a part of the squad last summer.
Unfortunately, he failed to cement himself in the plans of manager Neil Lennon.
In fact, he’s never really been given a real opportunity, managing just three substitute appearances during his time at the club.
Clearly he’s not done enough in training to warrant a start but some have felt sorry for the Ukrainian following the switch from Karpaty Lviv in his homeland.
Now, his father has revealed the player’s agent is on the verge of finding him a new place to play.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Vasily Shved said: “I think there will be clarity about Marian’s next club very soon. It’s in the hands of his agent now.
“The Scottish league was ended prematurely and Marian returned home due to the coronavirus and he kept himself in very good shape here.
“He’s 22 years old, plays for a top European team and is in the Ukraine squad, so he is fine. He still has a great future ahead of him.”
It’s not yet clear whether Shved’s exit this summer will be on a temporary or permanent basis, though the former feels more likely considering he only joined the club last year.
As we discussed earlier this week, Hungarian side Ferencvaros have been credited with an interest.
Celtic aren’t exactly blessed with great depth in the wing areas so there could be a necessity to dip into the transfer market this summer to help support talents such as James Forrest and Mikey Johnston.
That’ll be especially true if we fail to figure out a deal to extend Mohamed Elyounoussi’s stay at the club for the coming season.
Hopefully Lennon and his recruitment team have a couple of diamonds up their sleeves.
