Scottish champions Celtic have confirmed that numerous teams have made a bid for Belgium international Dedryck Boyata. The club have also distanced themselves with talk of an exit for the player, insisting the centre-back will be staying put for now.

According to multiple reports, Fulham and Bournemouth were amongst the teams that have made a transfer move for the defender who played for Belgium at this summer's World Cup.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed that bids have been made for the player. 

“Yes, we have had a few enquiries and there was a confirmed bid by Fulham for him," said Celtic manager Rodgers. “He is a player that we don’t want to lose. We know he is in the last year of his deal.

“He has been a fantastic player for me in my time here and he had an excellent World Cup when he played.

“He is clearly a player of value. At this point in time for us, he is very important and the club rejected that.”
