Boli Bolingoli: Amiens SC make loan bid for Celtic defender who broke coronavirus rules

French club Amiens SC have made a loan bid for Celtic’s Boli Bolingoli, who broke coronavirus rules.

Sky Sports News understands the Ligue 2 side’s loan offer includes an option to buy at the end of the season, for a fee of £2.3m.

Bolingoli left Parkhead chiefs and manager Neil Lennon furious after travelling to Spain last week, failing to tell the club and quarantine.
He featured in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Sunday, before admitting to Lennon that he had been to the ‘high risk’ country.

Celtic are looking to offload the player and are already targeting replacements, with Leeds left-back Barry Douglas high up on their shortlist.
Celtic and Aberdeen’s next two Premiership games have been postponed after high-profile breaches of coronavirus quarantine rules.

The move comes after Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon accused players of being “incapable of living up to their responsibilities”, with Celtic’s Boli Bolingoli breaking coronavirus quarantine protocols before playing in their 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Sunday.

Aberdeen’s trip to St Johnstone was also called off due to two of their players testing positive for coronavirus.
The summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27 and close at 11pm on October 5.

A domestic-only window for trades between the Premier League and EFL then runs from October 5 and closes on Friday October 16 at 5pm. Follow all the news and analysis on Sky Sports News and across Sky Sports’ digital platforms, including with our dedicated Transfer Centre blog.
