    Not counting Taylor because he could be on his way out and is he isn't, he won't be on the wings.
    The saddest thing is it's probably Bong

    To be honest I think all the League One attacking players we have been linked with are underwhelming. I don't think any of them will take us where we want to go. Hopefully all of them are just agent talk.

    Must admit I prefer the nippy, mobile goal poacher, a striker who creates his own chances as well as finishing assists from others, to the hulking type who stays in the middle waiting for an endless aerial bombardment to fall on his head.

    Could be good signing on free if we had someone who could cross a ball..

    Celtic increasingly confident of signing Sunderland's Charlie Wyke

    Good headline.

    CELTIC are increasingly confident of persuading Charlie Wyke to turn his back on Sunderland, and reject alternative offers from the Championship, in order to head north of the border for next season.

    Having confirmed Australian Ange Postecoglou as their new manager last week, Celtic are hoping to make significant progress in the transfer market in the next few days.

    They held initial talks with Wyke and his representatives earlier in the summer, and are now ready to firm up a formal offer to the Teessider, who is a free agent following the end of his deal at the Stadium of Light.

    Sunderland officials have offered him a new contract on Wearside, and are understood to be willing to offer similar financial terms to what is expected to be on offer at Celtic, or at Championship clubs Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest and Millwall, who have also held talks this summer.

    Blimey I wouldn't like to be in his shoes (apart from for the cash of course) its a real Scylla and Caribidis....

    the "lure" of a "big" club like Celtic - but under a completely unproven and I fear quite barmy choice of new manager - or the grind of the championship with a club like ours.

    Pounds shillings and pence will win the day (so probably not us) but either way looks a proper gamble

    It's 46 games a season against roughly the same quality of team, or a load of games against shite along with a handful of difficult games versus Rangers, and a couple of European qualifiers, for which he will be much more handsomely rewarded.

    Celtic all day long. Hes 29 and likely not good enough for Celtic or the Championship so why not play in front of a huge crowd for probably the most money, while padding his record a bit with goals against crap like St Mirren and Dundee.

    You're right - sounds like the perfect storm to get a payday - I was merely thinking that as a professional footballer if you're looking to progress then Celtic looks like a disaster waiting to happen and I'm not sure I'd want to be on board ship as it happens, but as you say 29 off the back of one good season why not just take the money

    I dunno, I reckon we must be right up there in the teams who have stalled/ruined the careers of strikers.

    Law of averages suggests he will end up with at least a few medals if he signs a 3 year contract.

    Thank goodness for that, although that won't stop some (Nottingham Post) having a pop at Forest for being beaten to his signature by Wigan.

    Reportedly on 10k p/w at Wigan. I'd suspect he was on half that at Sunderland.

    Without any evidence whatsoever that either Wyke or Longman were even targets, let alone that bids had been made, the Post-online has predictably revealed that.....

    One of the reasons he chose Wigan apparently was the fans.
    Bewildered emoji.
    He must have enjoyed playing in empty stadiums last year and wants more of it.

    To be fair, he has just had his best ever season!

    If he’s doubling his wages then fair enough, I would do the same even if it meant playing for an absolute non entity of a club like Wigan over Sunderland.

    On a side note, stick a few quid on Wigan to win league 1 next year. I got them at 12's the other day, look like they are 'going for it' with their new owner.

    They already had a decent squad for that level to begin with, they just had no depth last year.

    Seen they signed that Stephen Humphrys chap from Rochdale yesterday as well. Building a seriously good side for that level.
