Marek Cech’s agent insists Celtic manager Tony Mowbray is keen to become reunited with the West Bromwich Albion left-back at Parkhead.
Mowbray took Cech, 26, to The Hawthorns from Porto in a £1.4million deal last summer but he struggled to dislodge Paul Robinson, making only three league starts and five substitute appearances all term.
Cech’s agent, Juraj Venglos, now claims Mowbray is looking to add to the capture of former Baggies loanee Marc-Antoine Fortune by bringing the Slovakia international north of the border.
Venglos said: “Apart from (Dutch club) FC Twente Enschede, Celtic are also maintaining their strong interest in the player.
“But the problem is that West Brom do not want to release him. (Manager) Di Matteo counts on him as a member of his squad for the upcoming season.”
He added: “I believe that everything will be sorted properly within this week.
“It is also possible that Marek will spend another season at West Brom.”
