Celtic FC Transfer News: Manager eyeing a move for George Baldock
Celtic has an insufficient number of players in the right-back position. Anthony Ralston is the only recognized right back, and the club is on the lookout for backups. Right Back, George Baldock is one of the players on Celtic’s transfer list. The 28-year-old was one of the few good performers for Sheffield United, who had a shambolic Premier League season as they were relegated back to Championship.
Baldock featured 32 times for the Blades in the 2022-21 Premier League season. He has a tackling record of 72% successful tackles and would be a perfect fit at Celtic. Baldock earned £26k per week at Sheffield United, and if Celtic want to bring him in, they will have to expand their purse.
According to reports, Celtic have been in pursuit of Baldock since 2019 and want to bring him to Scotland this summer. Baldock still has one year left in his contract, and we will have to wait to get updates about his future.
