Sheffield Wednesday’s chairman has revealed the extent of Celtic‘s interest in Jordan Rhodes.
Dejphon Chansiri has been speaking about the future of the Scotland international striker recently.
And he covered the supposed interest of Celtic in January, with The Scottish Sun reporting in December that Rhodes was a target.
That move obviously didn’t materialise, with Celtic instead signing Polish striker Patryk Klimala.
Now Chansiri has revealed that there was never an offer from the Scottish champions for Rhodes.
Per Yorkshire Live, Chansiri said: “My people also told me Celtic had supposedly made an offer but we demanded a very big loan fee that stopped the deal. Again, this is not true, there was no official approach or offer at all.
“If the deal is right for all parties we can move but if not we cannot, it is that simple.”
Rhodes is approaching the final year of his Sheffield Wednesday contract and right now it looks unlikely that he’ll remain with the club beyond that.
He’s only scored 10 goals in 52 appearances for the English Championship club – failing to rediscover the form that made him one of the most in-demand strikers in English football between 2010 and 2016.
