Many Celtic supporters have been talking about a news update involving Jonjoe Kenny that recently emerged on social media.

According to The Times, while Kenny has made a good start to life at Parkhead, his wages could become a problem when it comes to Celtic making a permanent move for the Everton full-back.

Spotrac claims that Kenny earns around £15,000 a week at Everton and although Celtic are thought to have plenty on their books on at least that amount, it is believed that any permanent move for Kenny hinges on finances that the Hoops are reluctant to commit to.

Should Celtic meet Everton's asking price for Kenny?





An update about Kenny’s situation was relayed on Facebook by Celtic News Now. Many Hoops supporters made their views clear about the defender as they pondered over making a move for the on-loan Toffees man.

What did Celtic fans make of this news about Kenny?

Before joining Celtic on loan in January, Kenny hadn’t been a regular for the Everton first team in the initial half of the campaign. He played only 77 minutes in the Premier League, making four appearances but he played three FA Cup games for the Toffees (as per Transfermarkt).

Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

He was loaned out to Schalke in the summer of 2019 and during his tenure in the Bundesliga, he became a regular for them and played 31 league games. He scored two goals and even picked up three assists for Schalke (as per WhoScored).

A lot of these Celtic fans have given a negative view about Kenny and some believe that the Hoops should not pay a high fee for the defender.

The 23-year-old has done well in his time at Parkhead so far though, playing five times in the Premiership and picking up an impressive rating of 7.12 so far. He has one assist to his name too (as per WhoScored).

However, the right-back is currently valued at £6.3 million and if Everton do demand a fee of around £10 million to sell him as they have reportedly done in the past, the Hoops may run the risk of overpaying for Kenny.
