A whole host of Celtic fans appear to have reacted negatively on Twitter to the latest transfer news surrounding Leo Hjelde.

It has been reported that the Bhoys are close to losing their young centre-back Hjelde to Leeds United and he will leave the club having failed to make one appearance for the club.

Are you excited to go back to Celtic Park?





Hjelde spent last season out on loan at Ross County, which was his first taste of first-team football and Leeds may have seen something in him from that loan spell.

A lot of Celtic fans are fuming on Twitter at the latest Hjelde news.

What have these Celtic fans been saying?

“Baffling, good young left-sided defender, if only we needed that position filled or challenged for right now!!”


“Very disappointing this.”


“Another 1 bites the dust”


“This one hurts.”


“Always gonna happen with our young guys as soon as a Premier League team wants them. People need to accept that”


“Disappointing to see. This boy looks a player!”


Celtic only have four recognised centre-backs at the club, and with Christopher Jullien injured, letting go of someone who has first-team minutes under his belt may be seen as a strange one.

Although from a business perspective, Hjelde only has one year left to run on his contract, so Celtic may see getting money for him this summer rather than losing him on a free transfer as the better outcome for all concerned.
