According to a report from Football Insider, Stoke City goalkeeper Josef Bursik is wanted by Scottish Premiership side Celtic ahead of the January transfer window, with his contract at the club set to expire at the end of the season.
Stoke City goalkeeper Josef Bursik – who is currently out on loan with League One club Accrington Stanley – is reportedly attracting transfer interest from a number of sides ahead of the January transfer window.
Scottish Premiership side and Europa League club Celtic are said to be keen on bringing Bursik in during the January transfer window. Bursik is not the only Stoke man said to be on the reigning Scottish Premiership champions’ shopping list, with Tyrese Campbell also reported to be on Celtic’s radar.
However, Celtic are not the only team keen on Bursik. The youngster’s situation at Stoke City is reportedly being watched over by a number of clubs in the Premier League, with the possibility of picking him up on a cut-price deal an attractive option.
Bursik, 19, only made his second appearance for Accrington Stanley at the weekend, playing in his first League One game for the club as they defeated Portsmouth comprehensively, beating Kenny Jackett’s side 4-1. This is not Bursik’s first taste of senior football, having spent a short stint out on loan with Hednesford after joining Stoke City from the AFC Wimbledon academy.
While at Stoke, the ‘keeper has mainly played for the club’s youth sides and is yet to make his debut for the club.
