John Park is reportedly closing in on a return to Celtic, with Lee Congerton seemingly on his way to Leicester to join up with Brendan Rodgers.
It appeared as if Congerton would remain in Scotland, but as the weeks have passed, it seems increasingly likely that the Celtic head of Recruitment will be on his way.
With Park set to return to Scotland and once again work alongside Neil Lennon, we’ve taken a look back at some of his best signings during his previous spell at the club.
It feels like a lifetime ago that Victor Wanyama was turning out for Celtic, but he was signed from the relatively unknown Beerschot for just under £1 million. After impressing in Scotland, he earned Celtic huge profits with a £12.5 million move to Southampton in 2013.
The Hoops also benefitted from his move to Scotland after inserting a sell-on clause into his Southampton deal. A very smart piece of business from the club.
To spend £2.4 million on a striker from England’s third tier may have been seen as a risk, regardless of the goals he had scored for Scunthorpe.
However, Hooper certainly gave Celtic their money’s worth. He enjoyed three brilliant years at Celtic before moving to Norwich in a £5 million move.
It looks like the Hoops cashed out at the right moment, with the striker never really enjoying the same success since his move away from Scotland.
Virgil van Dijk
Signed for just £2.6 million from Dutch side Groningen and he was imperious for Celtic. He would go on to be sold to Southampton for £13 million, a fee that still feels far too low, but the Hoops did have a sell-on fee included in that.
It’s telling that many still believe that the £75 million that Liverpool paid Southampton for his services was too low.
He’s now considered by many to be the best central defender in the world.
It’s easy to forget that Fraser Forster was quite a popular figure at Celtic given his recent demise at Southampton.
Signed for just £2 million, he produced the goods for Celtic in between the sticks both domestically and in Europe.
His form in Scotland saw him earn a call-up to the England squad under Roy Hodgson.
He was sold to Southampton in 2014 for £10 million. Not bad business if you can get it.
A deal completed by Celtic in the latter stages of Park’s previous stint at the club.
While he has missed recent months with an injury, Rogic has been a staple in the Hoops squad during his time at the club, providing that extra bit of quality and flair in the final third.
We’ll save the best until last. The man that needs no introduction.
A bigger initial outlay of £4.4 million in order to bring him to the club, but how he has paid the club back.
Brown remains a Celtic stalwart and has proved time and time again he was worth every penny.
He’s recently rejected a big-money move to Australia and looks likely to see out his career at the club.
