Emilio Izaguirre has confirmed he’s in talks with Celtic about a return to the club.
The Honduran full-back spent seven years as a Hoops player after signing from Motagua back in 2010, making 252 appearances and helping the club to 10 major trophies.
But he left a year ago in search of a fresh challenge, signing for Al-Fayha in Saudi Arabia.
He managed just 17 appearances for them, though, leaving the club citing family issues – and that’s now set him up for a possible return to Glasgow.
Brendan Rodgers yesterday told of his frustration over the lack of signings at Celtic this summer, but Izaguirre has emerged as a target today along with a few others.
And the Honduran has confirmed he’s talking to Celtic about a return while speaking to a radio station in his homeland.
Per scotsman.com, Izaguirre said: “I am arranging a contract with Celtic to return. I decided I don’t want to stay in Central America just now.
“Since leaving Saudi Arabia, I’ve had offers to play for clubs in Turkey and Croatia. There was also interest from Alajuelense in Costa Rica, but no formal offer.
“I’ve been on holiday at home recently, but I’m ready to go to Scotland again.”
Celtic are in need of cover for Kieran Tierney at left back and Izaguirre should be a perfect fit there after spending a few seasons as the Scottish international’s backup.
So, you can expect Izaguirre will be confirmed as a Hoops player again fairly soon.
