The Hoops No 2 was addressing the media ahead of Celtic’s match with Partick Thistle, and also gave an update on the Marvin Compper saga.

“He fits our profile of a centre-half, our style. It’s not done yet so I won’t talk too much about a player that isn’t ours,” was all Davies would say about the club’s reported pursuit of the RB Leipzig defender.

But talking about the upcoming transfer window, Davies appeared to play down the possibility of it being a busy time in the east end of Glasgow.

“I don’t envisage January being particularly busy for us,” the former Reading, Liverpool and Swansea City coach said.

“We’ll recruit where needed and some players may move on as the squad evolves. We have a strong squad with good players but we’re always looking to improve.”

Whilst Celtic’s desire for a central defender has been widely publicised, the club has also been linked with a handful of strikers in recent weeks including Richmond Boakye and Artem Dovbyk.

Brendan Rodgers said last month that he was preparing to spend in January but Davies’ comments suggest that any activity may be minimal.
