Supporters of Celtic have recently reacted to a claim from Diego Laxalt’s agent which has emerged on social media.

Back in October, the Hoops sealed the arrival of the Uruguayan on a season-long loan from Serie A giants AC Milan (per BBC).

Despite Neil Lennon having expressed that he would like to sign the player permanently following the expiry of his loan, Laxalt seemingly has other plans (per Daily Record).

According to his agent – Ariel Krasouski – the 27-year-old left-back is targeting a move down south as his “wish is to play next season in England“.

This claim was relayed to Hoops fans by Everything Celtic and it had lots of them talking.

So far this season, the Uruguayan has made six appearances in the Premiership for the Hoops, in which he has scored once and not provided an assist (per WhoScored).

His performances have not been overly impressive, too, as he has earned a 6.74/10 average rating, making him only the 16th-best performer in Lennon’s squad in the league.

As can be seen in these responses from Celtic fans, there was a mixed reaction from them regarding the report on Laxalt.
