Anthony Joseph offers update on Celtic academy prospect’s contract talks

Celtic may already know Abada's replacement after Anthony Joseph reveal
Celtic have been doing some fine job in tying down their key players onto new and improved terms this season.

Brendan Rodgers moved rapidly to bed in some stability at the club as talk increased that some of Celtic’s first-team talents could have followed Ange Postecoglou down south to Tottenham Hotspur.

As it transpired, Kyogo Furuhashi, Matt O’Riley, Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda all vowed their future to the club.

And this week, Liam Scales followed suit. But as every fan knows, it’s not just the Celtic first team that needs work done on the contract situation as Anthony Joeseph offers an update on young Daniel Kelly‘s contract talks.

Daniel Kelly refuses new deal but is ‘keen’ to stay at Celtic
We explained back in March how Celtic and young Daniel Kelly were both keen to extend his time in Paradise. Talks were in their beginning stages but confidence was high that a deal could be struck.

But Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph has offered a bitter-sweet report this afternoon on how the talks have been going so far.

Both parties are still hungry to agree terms.

His current agreement expires on Dec 31 & he might initiate pre-contract discussions with other teams in July.
18-year-old Kelly was awarded his debut in the Scottish Cup in the 5-0 win over Buckie Thistle in the Scottish Cup earlier this year.

The teenager scored his first goal scoring SPFL start for Celtic in the 7-1 thumping of Dundee as well and it seems that what he is doing on the pitch as well as in training is really impressing Brendan Rodgers.

Hopefully both sides are not too far away in where they want the contracts to be and the good news is that both do share a shared aim.

Hopefully, a deal can be completed and the Celtic fans can enjoy witnessing a young youth prospect grow in the first squad in the not-too-distant future.
