HOOPS SUMMER TARGET HENRY IN PEACE TALKS AS HE WAITS IN BELGIUM

1

CELTIC target Henry Onyekuru has held peace talks with his Belgian club KAS Eupen after going AWOL.

The 19-year-old Nigerian striker staged a vanishing act and missed three first team games after a £1million bid from the Hoops was rejected last month.

But the pacy left-sided attacker has now apologised to the club and his team-mates for his actions after a clear-the air meeting.

It looks as though Onyekuru will escape punishment and he is poised to return to the squad.

The club statement said: “Henry Onyekuru took part in Friday morning’s first-team training session.

“Before the session, the young Nigerian apologised to the staff and the team for his absence. The team discussed the subject internally and decided to accept Henry Onyekuru’s apology.

“Following this positive development, he will be a part of the squad. All other details regarding this incident will be discussed and sorted out internally.”

The teenage sensation has been linked with CSKA Moscow with the Russian transfer window still open, but there seems little doubt a move to the Scottish champions is his preferred option.

Brendan Rodgers will re-ignite the Hoops’ interest in the summer, but is unlikely to match Eupen’s over inflated valuation of £3million for a player who has yet to figure at any level of international football.
