Celtic move for Saturn defender Durica

Celtic have made a move for Slovakia defender Jan Durica.

Durcia's agent has confirmed that Celtic lodged a £3million (4million euros) bid for the 26-year-old - who can play left-back and centre half.

But his club, Saturn of Russia, rejected the offer and now Karel Csonto does not think they will back with a renewed offer.

"About three days ago Celtic representatives contacted us and said that they would like to capture Jan Durica. I personally discussed the transfer with Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell," Csonto told SITA.

"The Scottish side have offered Saturn a €4 million bid, which is not an adequate offer.

"The Russians have already turned it down. Personally, at present I don't see his move to Celtic too realistic."
