Celtic has already proceeded with the transfer plans and is dealing with Yuki Kobayashi, the Japanese center-back. He is a new signing, which has been confirmed already before the winter window opens. The next player to be signed is Alistar Johnston.
About his former Barcelona star, Kobayashi said that he has learned a lot from him and he has shown a significant desire and hunger to go and win the ball. He said that it has been incredible to see that and it taught him how to play like that. According to him, it had been a pleasure to be able to get the experience of working with him, and said that it has helped him achieve his goal.
The experience of Vermaelen with 85 caps for Belgium and playing time with Arsenal, Ajax, and Barcelona have caused him to be a part of Belgium’s coaching team in World Cup Qatar. Vermaelen will have offered significant learning for Kobayashi for taking onboard. Every player at Celtic is keen to see the brand-new signing being put to practice in the Hoops. So, it is to be seen how things are going to go for him in Glasgow.
He is going to have some tough competition for the spot in the team as Celtic already has players, such as Carl Starfelt, Cameron Cater-Vickers, Moritz Jenz, and Stephen Welsh.
