Ex-Celt Jason Denayer Reportedly Getting £36,000 Per Week at Lyon

Jason Denayer is reportedly getting £36,000 per week after signing for Lyon from Manchester City.

The Belgian defender appeared a target for Celtic this summer after again failing to make any sort of breakthrough into Pep Guardiola’s team in pre-season.

He has spent the last few campaigns away from the club on loan, first for the Hoops before playing with Galatasaray either side of a poor spell at Sunderland.

So it was clear that Denayer was available this season – and Celtic looked a good fit considering his previous stay in Glasgow was a success and Brendan Rodgers is currently on the lookout for reinforcements at centre back.

However, the Belgium international has now been confirmed as a Lyon player, signing a deal until 2022 which is reportedly worth €2million per year:

With those reported wages and fee, you have to wonder if Celtic were priced out of a move for Denayer?

He played 44 times for the Scottish champions back in the 2014/15 season, helping them lift the Premiership and League Cup before picking up the PFA Young Player of the Year himself.
