No Euro move for Celtic defender after loan bid turned down
Reports emerged of a loan bid from French side Toulouse as they look to bolster their squad following their return to Ligue 1.
Welsh, whose current deal runs until 2025, was third-choice centre-back last season under Ange Postecoglou, playing back-up to Carl Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers. He still featured 24 times for the Scottish champions.
Postecoglou is keen for the 22-year-old to remain part of the squad.
It means Postecoglou currently has five centre-back options with Starfelt, Carter-Vickers and Welsh, plus Christopher Jullien and recent addition Moritz Jenz.
With Starfelt injured the Scotland Under-21 star has been a regular starter during pre-season, as he did in the weekend’s win over Norwich City before making way for Jenz in the second half.
