    Too inconsistent and injury prone. Punt and bring in a quality replacement.

    I would take 7m tbh.

    Cant play on artificial surfaces and our league has a few.

    Constant lapses in concentration.

    Complete bipolar form.

    Unless we actually have someone lined up and literally ready and waiting to sign, selling him before the final qualifier would be absolute madness.

    If this can be invested in a RB, only then sell.

    Might be in the minority here but I really don’t think there is a great deal of difference between Jozo and Bitton as 3rd centre half the way they both bring the ball out and Bitton would develop with more game time, I do think since Lennon has come in he has played a lot better but is always a risk felt he was at fault in the first leg and will miss games due to a stupid foul. So I think that 5 would be a good deal then we could look to find a younger 19-21 replacement for about 2m leaving 3 to add to the right back funds

    Keep him

    Different story if money was to be reinvented but no chance of that. Pedro will stuff it under his mattress with rest of the cash.

    Set a price (8mill sterling) and let him go. Buy a young 19-22 centre back to be 3rd/4th choice to ajer and jullien and develop him. Considering what he offers and what we got, selling him for a nice profit is a no brainer . Off the top my head Dara oshea wba would be a super purchase.

    The money if true would be great deal for ourselves.

    The fact it could takes us 2 years to replace him isn't ideal

    I am not his biggest fan, he is injury prone, inconsistent and a lunatic. I would still only let him go if we have a replacement lined up. We need at least four capable central defenders and we currently have three, pending the arrival of Abd Elhamed. We may well need another one in anyway, so to have to replace another player seems like unnecessary hard work.
    The squad is in good shape(apart from the obvious issue) and the club is financially comfortable, so outside of Ntcham * off, Hendry leaving and a couple of players going on loan, I would hope nobody else leaves.

    LILLE boss Christophe Galtier has admitted he’s an admirer of Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic.

    SunSport exclusively revealed last week that the French side are set to launch a £5million for the stopper.

    The Croatian-born Hoops star has won ten trophies with Celtic since joining from Dinamo Zagreb four years ago.

    But he’s a target for ambitious Ligue 1 side Lille, who finished runners-up in the French league and will play in the Champions League group stages.


    And their manager Galtier didn’t attempt to hide his interest in 24-year-old Simunovic, when asked about his transfer plans this summer.

    He said: “Jozo Simunovic is a very good player with a good knowledge of European football.”


    Lille are trying to sell central defender Adama Soumaoro to fund the transfer, after already splashing out £9 million to land former Celtic loan star Timothy Weah.

    They’ve also spent £6.5 million on Rennes midfielder Benjamin Andre and need to sell to fund any move for Simunovic.

    If the money is big enough then fine, but he's been very good this year.
