Commons says Celtic don't need big signings in January

  Commons says Celtic don't need big signings in January Former Celtic midfielder Kris Commons says Brendan Rodgers’ side don’t need big-name signings this month. As reported by the Daily Record, Commons says he doesn’t expect to see huge sums of money being spent in January. “But do they need a marquee signing? I don’t think they do. You buy what’s going to make your squad better. Over the years Celtic have been renowned for bringing in a marquee signing but if it’s not going to make the squad better there’s no point.” Commons tipped Celtic for success this season without bringing fresh faces in January. “Celtic are in a much more stable condition now, they look like they’re going to win the Treble again, they look like they’re more than capable of giving anyone in Europe a run for their money on their day. They just need to keep ticking over.” Celtic have been busy in the transfer market, completing a deal for promising youngster Lewis Morgan, who returned to St Mirren on loan for the remainder of the season. Marvin Compper also joined the club from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig. Reports have suggested that Rodgers is not finished with his January business with loan deals also being discussed. Erik Sviatchenko left the club for FC Midtjylland on loan, all-but spelling an end to his time at Celtic, while Jozo Simunovic is also being linked with a host of Premier League clubs. Moussa Dembele, as ever, has been linked with a move away from the club in January but no deal has materialised.

Celtic complete deal to sign Leo Mazis .
Celtic have wasted no time bringing players into the club during the January transfer window as they have completed the signing of Leo Mazis on a three-and-a-half-year contract this week. Mazis first joined the club on a trial basis back in November and has performed well enough behind the scenes to prompt the club to hand him a permanent contract, joining from Belconnen United, who play in Canberra’s National Premier League. The 17-year-old winger is expected to join up with the Celtic development squad where he will be monitored ahead of a potential future push into the first-team, following in the footsteps of Kieran Tierney and Liam Henderson in recent seasons. Mazis becomes the second confirmed transfer of the window after the Bhoys signed defender Marvin Compper from Red Bull Leipzig for a reported £1m, while a £300,000 deal for Lewis Morgan is expected to be concluded soon, with the youngster returning to St. Mirren on loan for the rest of the season.
