Celtic winger Marian Shved is attracting transfer interest in Hungary, The Scottish Sun reports.
The paper believe that the £2m signing, one of Brendan Rodgers’ last before leaving the club, is a subject of interest for Ferencvaros who are managed by former Ukrainian international Serhiy Rebrov.
Shved has a known profile in his homeland Ukraine after impressing for Karpaty Lviv prior to his switch to Glasgow.
At Celtic he’s struggled to convince Neil Lennon he is worthy of first-team action, making just a single league appearance in the Scottish Premiership.
His last sighting in competitive action for the Bhoys came in a Scottish Cup victory over Clyde in February and that was just a brief cameo.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be working out for him and with teams apparently keen on his services, it would make sense if he made an exit.
Rebrov would not confirm the transfer link but did admit he’d be happy to work with more Ukrainians at his current club.
The former Spurs man said, as quoted by The Scottish Sun: “I don’t want to confirm or deny my interest in Marian Shved.
“Of course I would be happy to work with another Ukrainian in the squad, but there are a number of players in all positions we are looking at.
“We are always looking to improve the squad.”
Given the effects of the ongoing public health crisis, Celtic simply can’t have a bloated squad heading into the new season.
All of our wage resources must be going towards players who have a chance of featuring regularly.
The evidence so far would suggest Shved doesn’t fall into that category, even if there is hope he has attacking talent that could be useful to the team.
The reality is we may never see him realise that potential in Glasgow.
If a team is willing to take Shved off of our hands, even if it’s just on loan, we should let them.
