Reports in South Africa suggest Rivaldo Coetzee’s impending transfer to Celtic is in jeopardy.
Soccer Laduma, who first broke the news of Celtic’s interest in the Cape Town Ajax star, claim the defender has an issue with a bone in his foot.
The deal to sign the 20-year-old had been agreed pending a work permit and a medical.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers refused to confirm or deny the reporters, though he did reveal club physiotherapist Tim Williamson was in South Africa to complete the medical,.
When reports of a foot injury were mentioned in the aftermath of his side’s draw with St Johnstone, he said: “Okay, I am awaiting on that. My understanding is that Tim is over there.
“I spoke to him last night, so I will get the clarification on that.”
