Crystal Palace And Newcastle Monitoring Celtic Defender Jozo Simunovic 

share on:

Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are both interested in signing Celtic centre-back Jozo Simunovic, according to the Daily Mail.

Simunovic, 22, made his name in his native Croatia with Dinamo Zagreb, before moving to Celtic in 2015.

Jozo Simunovic  has been capped for his country nine times at U21 level and has impressed manager Brendan Rodgers

The 22-year-old saw a £4million move to Torino break down in the summer after the Italians tried to change the structure of the payments and raised concerns about a knee injury he suffered last season.

Celtic refused to sanction the deal and he returned to Scotland.

Jozo Simunovic has impressed manager Brendan Rodgers who said: ‘He is a big talent.’

‘If you look at his profile, he is 6ft 3in, he is very dominant, strong, quick, can serve the ball and for a young player shows a wonderful mentality.

‘He is a player I really like and hopefully he can stay fit.’
