    He has higher potential than kayal...he is very technical for his height.

    We need a rock-solid fix to the gap Wanyama left. I hope Biton is worth his 195 cm. Don't care about technique that much.

    He served with the IDF.I understand it's mandatory in Israel but knowing what that organisation is responsible for does make me feel a but uneasy.

    On topic though,I think he's exactly the kind of player we could do with now.He is obviously talented and after tonight I think he'll be determined to come here and play CL football in the hoops.

    He has to serve with the idf, either way who cares what country he is from. He is here to play football.

    European U21 Championship: The ones to watch

    http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/euroscout/european-u21-championships-ones-watch-171901101.html

    Nir Biton (FC Ashdod)

    "The 6’5” defensive midfielder is one of the most highly-rated prospects in Israeli football history. A beast of a man, he can also get involved higher up the pitch and was surprisingly waived by Manchester City after an impressive trial last summer. Is expected to move on after these championships, Biton is already a senior international and could go all the way."


    Player Focus: Impressive Players at the Euro U21 Championships

    http://www.whoscored.com/Blog/kha2qlmfmu2rpdca8zkwew/Show

    Nir Biton (Israel)

    "An unmissable figure in the centre of midfield, 6'5" beanpole Nir Biton will be hoping for a move to Europe this summer having twice had trials with Manchester City in the past. The 21-year old scored the first goal of the tournament, netting from the penalty spot in the curtain raiser against Norway, and is one of a selection of players to have started all three games in the competition.

    Indeed, of the 21 players to have played from the off in all three group matches, only Spain stars Alcantara and Isco have a better WhoScored rating than the Israeli (7.60). The host nation's captain made more tackles (16) than any other player in the group stages and was the starting point of most of his side's attacks, averaging a team high of 46.7 passes per game. A combative midfielder with an impressive range of passing, completing 18 out of 21 (86%) of his long ball attempts, Biton may finally earn the move he's been waiting for this summer."

    Well, yes. A 195 cm DM is supposed to be a hulking presence. If he has other talents, it's a bonus.

    I know nothing about this dude. Had to check him out on Wikipedia.

    6 ft 5 in. Captain of their Under-21 squad.

    Nice.

    Looks like he could * someone up.

    By the way, do we have any Israeli or Palestinian Celtic supporters here on TC? I wonder.
