Celtic have made some very astute moves in the transfer market in recent seasons and it appears that it hasn’t gone unnoticed south of the border.
The Daily Record note that Championship side Norwich are eager to appoint Celtic’s head of development scouting David Moss to become their new Director of Football and head up the football operations at Carrow Road.
Well adrift of the play-offs after being relegated last season, Norwich want to bring in a Director of Football to oversee the club’s day-to-day running before making a move on bringing in a new manager after Alex Neil was sacked earlier this month.
Moss headed up the scouting network that identified the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Victor Wanyama prior to their moves to Celtic and have since been sold to Premier League club Southampton for major profits.
The 48year-old also initially opened talks with Moussa Dembele’s agent Mamadi Fofana and played a large role in persuading Celtic’s leading marksman to join the club last summer.
It’s clear that Moss plays a key role in what Celtic do in terms of scouting and recruiting players and would be a major loss behind the scenes if he took the job at Norwich.
