Celtic sends in first bid for ‘creative” Defender

 Celtic are interested in signing Scott McKenna from Nottingham Forest in the January transfer window.

That is according to PLZ Soccer, which has reported that Celtic have already made enquiries.

So, what has been reported about Celtic, Scott McKenna and Nottingham Forest?

Celtic linked with Nottingham Forest defender Scott McKenna

In any event, Scott McKenna of Nottingham Forest is reportedly a target for Celtic during the January transfer window, according to PLZ Soccer.

The source claims that a number of teams, notably Celtic, the Scottish Premiership winners from the previous season, are very interested in McKenna’s skills.

In an effort to bolster his defense, manager Brendan Rodgers of the Hoops has made “tentative enquiries.”

McKenna intends to sign for Besiktas, according to a December 2023 FotoMac story, which also stated that the defender plans to move out of City Ground in January 2024.

 Nottingham Forest should sell Scott McKenna

Nottingham Forest should try to get a reasonable price for center back Scott McKenna when selling him during the January transfer window.

McKenna’s contract with Forest ends at the end of the current campaign, and he is not currently a part of the first team squad.

It appears that there is a conflict about his contract. I don’t get why Forest would hang onto a player until the summer of 2024 before letting him go for free if he isn’t going to benefit the team.

McKenna is now training apart from the starting lineup. When Forest recruited McKenna from Aberdeen, they had to pay him £3 million in transfer fees (Press & Journal). The Reds are succeeding in their games and adjusting to life in his absence. Nuno’s team has won its last two Premier League games against Manchester United.

The Scotland international has played in five Premier League games this year. During the 2022–2023 league season, the center defender made 19 starts and one replacement appearance.

With 20 points from 20 games, Forest is in 15th place in the Premier League, five points above the bottom three.
