Rogic links up with Celtic

Central Coast Mariners midfielder Tomas Rogic will travel to Spain on Thursday for a mid-season training camp with Celtic.

Youngster Tom Rogic has received his first international call-up
Rogic is likely to pursue a move overseas this year

Celtic are currently preparing for the second half of the Scottish Premier League season and Rogic is expected to spend one week with the Bhoys in an attempt to secure an overseas deal.

The 20-year-old was recently linked with a move to English Premier League side Reading, although negotiations have stalled.

Central Coast confirmed that the Scottish giants have not yet made an offer for Rogic, although the club's General Manager of football Lawrie McKinna believes it is a great opportunity for the youngster to impress Celtic coach Neil Lennon.

"This is a great opportunity for Tomas to train with Celtic's first team squad," McKinna said. "Celtic are in their mid-season break and are busy preparing for their Champions League matches against Juventus starting in February, so Tom will undoubtedly learn a lot from the experience." 

Rogic's A-League contract expires at the end of the season, with Central Coast more willing to accept an offer now than to have the youngster leave on a free transfer in July.
