Two reasons to cheer: Celtic could agree deal for defender and creative midfielder

Celtic could agree two deals this summer, with defender Dedryck Boyata considering a contract extension at Parkhead and Hibernian midfielder John McGinn being a target for Brendan Rodgers.

Despite securing a second consecutive treble last season, Celtic aren’t resting on their laurels. They’re desperate to keep strengthening the side to ensure more success will come in 2018/19.

Celtic fans are still in a happy mood after winning every domestic trophy available, and they could have two more reasons to celebrate this summer.

Celtic are reportedly one of many clubs interested in Hibernian’s John McGinn and could boost their chances of a third consecutive treble next season with the creative midfielder in the squad.

Rodgers wants a midfielder that can contribute in the final third, similar to Tom Rogic, to provide the ammunition for his strikers. The signing of McGinn could make the Bhoys unstoppable next season.

Offering Dedryck Boyata a new deal

Boyata was sensational for Celtic last season,earning himself a place in Roberto Martinez’s Belgium squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The 27-year-old’s contract has just 12 months remaining, so Celtic should be thinking about offering him a new deal this month, as a couple of good performances at the World Cup could attract suitors.

Boyata, who joined the Hoops in 2015, will be crucial for Celtic next season and could establish himself as a club legend if he stays for the long-term.

With reports hinting the defender is eyeing a new deal, Celtic fans can rejoice ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
