“Discussions”: Celtic and Aston Villa are locked in a £2 million conflict, and the director concedes that the club’s departure is “approaching.”.



“Discussions”: A £2 million dispute between Celtic and Aston Villa, and the director’s admission that the club’s demise is “approaching.”Hakon Valdimarsson’s rumored departure is “approaching its final stages,” according to Elfsborg, and Celtic are reportedly considering offers from Premier League powerhouses Aston Villa.

As soon as Joe Hart’s contract expires, Celtic can no longer delay in addressing the need for a new number one. Moreover, since neither Scott Bain nor Benjamin Siegrist appear to be candidates for the step up position, it is probable that the Scottish champions will seek an external acquisition. Andriy Lunin of Real Madrid is reportedly a candidate. However, this has been complicated by the fact that the Ukrainian appears to have supplanted Kepa Arrizabalaga as the primary choice of the Spanish giants during Thibaut Courtois’ injury-induced absence.


Therefore, Hakon Valdimarsson is not only more affordable but also more attainable than Lunin, who is reportedly valued at around £2 million. Celtic and Aston Villa both value Hakon Valdimarsson.

Celtic has expressed interest, as reported by the Goteborgs Posten. Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano believes that Aston Villa and FC Copenhagen have both submitted “formal bids” for the 2023 Allsvenskan Goalkeeper of the Year in recent days.


And although the sporting director of Elfsborg declined to specify which clubs are in the running, he seems to indicate that Valdimarsson is approaching his final stretch of the Swedish football off-season.


Fotboll Direkt is informed by Stefan Andreasson, “Hakon is phenomenal.” “Moreover, discussions are held with a few clubs.”


“We will discuss which options are available the following week.” Particularly concrete. What is advantageous for both Elfsborg and himself. We shall then see. “It is approaching near.” After Elfsborg held an open training session on Friday, Andreasson acknowledged that it is an honor to have attracted the attention of Aston Villa, who are vying for the Champions League and are led by Unai Emery.


Nonetheless, he indicated that the assurance of consistent playing time would probably be a significant factor in his decision regarding his next club. And he appears unlikely to earn the starting job at Villa Park unless the club’s World Cup-winning goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, leaves first.


A goalkeeper transfer at Villa Park may cause discord.

“It is quite large. They are a Premier League powerhouse and are performing exceptionally well. It is tremendously encouraging to see their interest. “It demonstrates my success,” Valdimarsson informs Aftonbladet.


“That might be (a wise decision on my part).” It has the highest caliber of everything and the best players. “Practicing alongside some of the greatest players in the world is beneficial to your growth.””Copenhagen FCC is a sizable club.” They have participated in the Champions League for the past two years and are arguably the largest team in Scandinavia. While not as significant as the Premier League, it may still represent a positive development, says Valdimarsson.


“My constant objective is to be able to perform while in motion. I am currently in Elfsborg and am unsure of what will transpire.
