Weiss would 'love' to join Celtic on loan

Manchester City winger Vladimir Weiss has revealed that he would love to join Celtic, though he admitted that his current club would only sanction a loan deal, not a permanent move.

Weiss, 20, has found first-team opportunities difficult to come by at City and after more additions to the already star-studded squad over the summer, the Slovakia international is determined to play regular football away from Eastlands.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is looking to bolster his squad and Weiss - who impressed on loan at Bolton last season - could help fill the hole left by the departure of winger Aiden McGeady.

City are reportedly not willing to let Weiss leave the club on a permanent basis, but could be open to sending him out on loan if an agreement can be reached.

"I'd love to play for Celtic," Weiss told the Daily Record. "It would be like a dream come true for me. The thing is, it's okay me saying I'd love to go to Celtic but it's not just up to me.

"Manchester City also have a say in where I go next. I need to speak to them and get their opinion of what is best for me. We trained on Sunday and I spoke to the manager.

"I told him there was interest from Celtic and I'd love to go. He told me to wait because he needs to speak to (football administrator) Brian Marwood but we should know more after that.

"I've got to wait and speak to the manager, things should be a bit clearer after that. I should find out on Monday or Tuesday morning.

"A few clubs have come in and tried to buy me but Manchester City said there's no chance of that. But they've said they will let me go on loan, it's just about the destination.

"They know I need to get a season where I play week in, week out and I think Celtic would be a great option. There are still a few more clubs who are interested so I'll have to speak to my dad because it's not an easy decision. But Celtic are a great club, a big club."
