On Sunday afternoon, a report by Givemesport indicated that Ange Postecoglou’s team were interested in loaning the midfielder.
The Hoops were mentioned alongside West Ham and Aston Villa, with the 28 year-old wanting to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.
These links were immediately closed by Mark Hendry, Football Scotland journalist, who has been a reliable source of Celtic transfer news throughout the window.
Hendry claimed that rumours linking Hendry to Parkhead’s England internationalist were “well out of the mark” as the Bhoys summer recruiting drive continues behind closed doors.
Ange Postecoglou, 56, is still looking for more deals to complete his summer deal.
The Celtic manager repeatedly stated that he is open to ‘one or two more’ new additions.
The club will continue to wait for the right opportunities as it enters the last few weeks of the window.
Speaking to the media Friday afternoon, the former Socceroos boss reiterated that point and insisted that the Hoops would still be active while the window is open.
Celtic could be busy at the end of the window
Ange Postecoglou has had a busy summer, bringing in some amazing new players and deadwood from his team.
There is still much work to do on the transfer front, as there are only a few weeks before the window closes.
Albian Ajeti, Christopher Jullien and Christopher Jullien are likely to leave the club. Postecoglou has no plans for the duo entering this campaign.
Also, the comments of the Celtic manager from last week suggest that he has some areas in his mind that he would not mind expanding on before September starts.
As with every transfer window, the Bhoys will likely be linked to a host of names as other clubs around the world look to sign some of their players.It will be fascinating to see what Postecoglou plans to do in the coming weeks. Ross Barkley is one man we can certainly cross off the rumoured “To Do” list.
