It is understood that Boyata will not feature in Wednesday night's Champions League qualifying round match against Greek side AEK Athens, though could return to the side for the Scottish Premiership fixture against Hearts.

According to Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws, Celtic are interested in signing the Manchester City defender as part of their plans to improve their defence for the new season.

Brendan Rodgers' men have been short of options at the back for their Champions League qualifiers, with their usual first-choice centre-half recuperating after playing for Belgium at the World Cup.

"He is clearly a player of value and, at this point in time for us, he is very important and the club rejected that". With just a few days to go until the transfer window slams shut, the Times have reported that Fulham have made a £9 million bid for Boyata.

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

When asked if Celtic would be unwilling to consider any more bids for him, Rodgers said: "No, because it would be very hard for us to replace him at this late stage".

Those performances have alerted a number of clubs all over Europe, but it's the Cottagers who are most keen, with the Press Association claiming that an offer in the region of €15m has been rejected.

"So we have to wait and see on that one".
