Nigeria Professional Football League side MFM FC have categorically denied reports about a bid from Scottish champions Celtic for top striker Stephen Odey.
A club source who spoke to Owngoalnigeria.com revealed the club have only received one offer for the 19 year old, and it came from Russian side FK Krasnodar.
” We read these things and laugh over it. So far only Kuban Krasnodar have been in touch officially. They sent us a mail which contained an offer for Odey. So I wonder where talks about Celtic came from,” he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” FC Copenhagen offered to have him on trail, through an agent but his manager said Odey won’t be going for any trials. Talking about Celtic those peddling the rumours should know that Odey is not qualified for a work permit yet.
” He will leave for Russia before the end of the week. He is going for negotiations with FK Krasnodar and that has been agreed on by the management, so for now that is our stand.”
