    I see we are linked with him again. Honestly think he could be the final piece in the 3-5-2 puzzle

    Is he no a winger?

    With Forrest injured and Mikey still out, we need an option on the wing and at left wing back..

    Hardly solid info but a Bristol city fan on twitter said he doesn’t fit their 3-5-2 which is why he’s available.

    He's running down his deal, is he no?

    He had one of the highest assists in the championship last season..

    NEIL LENNON is plotting a move for Bristol City wing back Niclas Eliasson — if a third bid for Alfie Doughty fails.

    The Celtic boss is anxious to strengthen his left-sided options before next Monday’s transfer deadline.


    His first choice is Doughty, but Charlton have knocked back two bids for the 20-year-old. Swede Eliasson is a free agent next summer, and was first eyed by Celts at the start of the year.

    The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour at City since boss Lee Johnson was sacked last July.



    Eliasson was watched by Hoops head of recruitment Gary Penrice in last week’s 3-0 EFL Cup home defeat to Aston Villa.

    Celtic have also been linked with Aarhus left back Casper Hojer, as Lennon and head of football operations Nick Hammond ensure they are aware of options to strengthen the squad.

    It's a bit off-putting that they are punting him because he doesn't work in a 3-5-2, considering we're probably going to use that formation going forward. Another winger would be good but if he's our own option for lwb/lb I think I'd prefer Hojer

    Aye he deffo doesn't fit a 3-5-2, very very average defensively, still a good player going forward but not what we need right now.

    (stats from transfer market)
    He is primarily a left or right mid, most games with 79 at right mid, 73 on the left but only 5 goals and 14 assists from the right but has 10 and 34 from. The left.

    Handfull of appearances as an outright winger same sort of ratio

    Also played some odd games in Central midfield, DCM, a game at left back, odd striker game so pretty versatile.

    I reckon he'd be pretty good at the LWB position for us as it is more attacking than defending as long as he has the legs and puts in a shift.

    Vs doughty and Hojer he has far more goals and assists (by games as doughty only has 1 season of data really) a decent bit more games played than Hojer (228 vs 183) but not so much that it's significant they have both been playing since 12/13 really

    Hojer has only had appearances as an LB (and an odd game at other defence positions) with 13 goals and 27 assists in 164 all from LB.

    All would be good options I think Ellison gives the most experience and infront of goal, doughty is a good looking prospect but is still just a 20 year old with promise at league 1/ bottom championship level.

    YouTube footage looks encouraging. Definitely more of a winger than a full back though. Can play on both wings which is a bonus.

    Would be happy with him and a LB.
