Celtic star’s agent quashes Arsenal and Sunderland speculation

first_img1 Nir Bitton Nir Bitton’s agent claims his client has no plans to leave Celtic – despite talk of interest from Arsenal and Sunderland.The defensive midfielder has been a hit since moving to Scotland in 2013, arriving for just £700,000 from Israeli side FC Ashdod.The 24-year-old’s performances have seen him linked with clubs in the Premier League and it was reported that a £10m offer would be enough to lure him away from Celtic.But now Bitton’s agent, Dudu Dahan, has denied speculation that his client will be leaving for England in the summer.“These reports are not correct, I have never said that Nir will leave Celtic,” Dahan told the Celtic official website.“Nir has signed a new contract with Celtic and appreciates everything he has at Celtic. He loves the club and wants to be at Celtic for a very long time.”last_img
