Celtic have held talks with Manchester United defender Saidy Janko with a view to making him their second signing of the summer.

The 19-year-old Switzerland Under-19 international spent the end of last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers with former Celtic boss Neil Lennon.

Janko, a right-back, can also play as a central defender or a right-sided midfielder.

He was in Glasgow on Thursday discussing a permanent move.

After joining United from FC Zurich in 2013, Janko made his senior debut in a League Cup defeat by MK Dons last August.

He subsequently made 10 appearances for Bolton, scoring on his debut in Wanderers' win against Fulham in February.

Celtic have already signed defender Dedryck Boyata from Manchester City during the summer transfer window.

One of our own enjoying his football at Dundee FC


Ben Priest left Wolverhampton Wanderers in January on a free

On deadline day of the winter transfer window this year, Wolves allowed Ben Priest to depart for Scottish Premier League outfit Dundee FC on a free transfer.

As a youngster making his way in football, it was a brave move, venturing away from his family into a different - albeit neighbouring - country.

The centre-back is currently a member of the Dark Blues’ development squad, and is biding his time until he earns himself the opportunity for a run in the first team.

Unfortunately for Priest, his time at Molineux was injury-strewn and he decided to move for the betterment of his career.

He said: During 2014/15 pre-season I suffered a ruptured appendix which put me out for over 10 weeks.

“The team had made a strong start which meant there was limited pitch time for me in the U18s team.

"I knew that my chances of now getting a pro contract at the club were slim, so I took responsibility to ask for a meeting to discuss my future at the club.

“At this meeting they agreed that I could trial at other places to try find myself a new club.

"Wolves were brilliant and I appreciated all the effort they put in for me for the over all the years I was there.”

Priest, who went to school in Kidderminster until he joined Wanderers’ academy at the under-12 group, has been kicking a ball since the age of four and points to his parents for the reasons behind wanting to become a professional.

He revealed: “I was brought up in a footballing family which influenced me to play football and see if I had any quality about me.

“My dad followed Aston Villa and England home and away, where he met my mum who also followed Villa.

“I’m a big Aston Villa fan and have had my season ticket for over 13 years, missing hardly any games.

“No matter what happens at Dundee in the future, the club will always be close to my heart.”

Despite being utilised nowadays as a hard-hitting central defender, that wasn’t always the path Priest was destined to take.

“I actually started out as an attacking midfielder, which was the position in which I got scouted.

“Because of my physical presence and my height I got pushed back into the centre-back role which I adapted to well, using my my communication, organisation and my heading ability.”

At the tender age of 18, and six months into his one-and-a-half year deal, Priest is loving life in Scotland and admits he’s loving the camaraderie between the nationalities in the group of youngsters.

He enthused: “As soon as I joined Dundee, I felt welcome and settled and I knew I’d made the right move.

“I get the odd joke and banter thrown at me but I’m not scared to give it back!

“We all have a laugh about it all but no one has ever been nasty or thrown abuse at me which I wouldn’t expect.

“Being one of the only English lads at the club I don’t think this has affected me as the Scottish lads are a great bunch and we have some decent banter.”

With his whole career ahead of him, would Priest ever consider a return to Molineux should the opportunity arise?

“I would never turn down a possible return to Wolves as I enjoyed my early years there and feel it is an amazing club only going upwards.

“But I do feel that Dundee could be the club for me long term if I continue to work hard and perform to the best of my ability which I know I can do.

“Dundee have been amazing to me and I am just focussed on repaying the faith the club have shown in me.”
