Celtic’s Erik Sviatchenko has revealed he’d prefer a move to England in January rather than a return to Denmark, reports the Scottish Sun.
Erik Sviatchenko – a long-term target for FC Copenhagen – has been told he’s surplus to requirements by boss Brendan Rodgers, but the 26-year-old would prefer to stay in Britain, should he depart Parkhead.
“Copenhagen are a big club so I don’t want to rule anything out – but the priority for me is to stay abroad.
“I feel that I have a lot to contribute and it’s an exciting challenge to be abroad compared to the Super League. I can see myself at a Championship club, for example.
“It’s a bold league where there are a lot of cool matches. It could also be a springboard for the Premier League. I’m 26. I’m on my way to my best football age and I want to play somewhere where I can get responsibility.”
