"Highly unlikely" that James McClean will join Celtic - O'Neill

Stoke City manager Michael O'Neill says it's "highly unlikely" that James McClean will join Celtic in this transfer window.

The Republic of Ireland, who was the Potters' player of the season last term, has been linked with a move the Scottish champions as Stoke look to cut to their wage bill in order to meet FFP regulations.

"I think that’s probably just a rumour that’s been created by someone," O'Neill said of the speculation around McClean.

"It certainly hasn’t come from our end. James isn’t a player, equally, that we are looking to lose at this minute in time.

“The nature of the transfer window is such that you have to be flexible and if any situation arises with any player, you have to give it consideration, particularly where we are at this minute in time.

“We have to obviously deal with the rules of Financial Fair Play and deal with a squad which is bloated. James is no different from any other player in the squad and if the situation arose we’d have to consider it, but at this minute in time I think that would be highly unlikely.
