CELTIC have been told to drop their asking price if they want to sell Teemu Pukki.
The Finnish flop, who cost £3million from Schalke in August 2013, has impressed during his season-long loan spell at Brondby.
But Per Rud, the Danish side’s sporting director, insists the SPFL champions will have to lower their demands if they want to offload the striker.
Rud said: “We all agree that we want Pukki at the club, but we also agree, and coach Thomas Frank too, that we should not break the bank for him.
“The price that has been set, we won’t pay.
“So the ball is back with them. Now they either go down with their price or they don’t.
“If they do not, then there will be no Pukki and we’re willing to accept that.”The frontman has claimed 13 goals in all competitions so far this season and has insisted he wants to remain in Denmark.
Celtic are believed to be asking for £1million for the player, dropping two-thirds of what they paid the Bundesliga outfit.
