Celtic are interested in signing the Manchester City defender Yan Couto.

The 19-year-old was on loan at Girona last season and he was quite impressive for the Spanish second-tier side.

According to Sky Sports, Celtic are looking to bring the Brazilian to Parkhead on loan for the next season.

The 19-year-old is highly rated at Manchester City and he needs to play regularly in order to continue his development.

The defender played 22 games for Girona last season and he will be hoping to build on that if he moves to Celtic in the upcoming season.

Ange Postecoglou needs to improve his defensive options this summer and Celtic have been linked with a host of names in recent weeks. They have signed Carl Starfelt already and the Hoops are thought to be looking at a number of fullbacks now.

A move to Celtic would be a major step up in the 19-year-old’s career and he would get to play at a higher level in Scotland.

Furthermore, Celtic might be able to offer him European football next season as well.

It seems unlikely that Manchester City will object to the move and it remains to be seen how the situation develops over the next few weeks.
