A whole host of Celtic fans appear to be delighted on Twitter with the latest news surrounding Cameron Carter-Vickers and Ko Itakura.

According to the Daily Record’s Jack Currie, both Carter-Vickers and Itakura have been linked with a move to Celtic and centre-back may be an area Ange Postecoglou wants to improve having lost Kristoffer Ajer to Brentford.

Will Celtic win the league this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Itakura is still on the books at Manchester City but despite featuring 36 times on loan with FC Groningen last season, the defender is expected to leave, whereas Carter-Vickers has seen himself linked with Celtic and League club Newcastle United following his performances with Bournemouth’s failed promotion push last season.

A lot of Celtic fans have reacted positively on Twitter to the latest transfer links.

What have these Celtic fans had to say?

“Itakura seems to be the type of player Ange is after.”

@MrCliftonville

“Would be delighted if we could get both.”

@Murrayserge

“Both would be great but I feel like CCV would be fit better. Regardless it will be an improvement from Welsh or Bitton”

@IamDrewman

“Itakura. If only just to help Kyogo settle. Plus a pretty decent player as well.”

@BhoyinRed

“Desperately need either of them”

@jimmyplaymaker

“Carter-Vickers all day long”

@Jimmilaw

In Postecoglou’s first four competitive matches as Celtic manager, he has seen his side concede seven goals, so targeting some new defenders should not come as that much of a surprise.

1 of 8

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

With both defenders at clubs playing in Europe, it would appear that their futures will be at another side, given the they both have ahead of Carter-Vickers and Itakura at Tottenham Hotspur and Man City respectively.
