The 26-year-old admitted: “Celtic is a club I admire — it is a big and great club. When I was younger, I watched a lot of their games in the Champions League.
“Celtic have had great teams and some Belgian players have been over there already. We just have to wait and see what happens and what the future will bring. I will talk to Genk in the coming days.”
