Celtic to sign Ajax sicknote Derk Boerrigter for €3.5m (Voetbal International)
- July 28, 2013
According to Dutch website Voetbal International, Celtic have completed the €3.5 million signing of Ajax winger Derk Boerrigter.
Boerrigter, 26 years old, played 45 games for Ajax scoring 12 goals between 2011-2013.
Boerrigter is poised to pen a 3-year deal at Celtic Park, provided the Dutchman passes a medical.
Should the deal come to completion, naysayers will claim that Celtic have signed a dud. Boerrigter carries the terrible reputation of being a glorified impact sub who is injured far too often for comfort.
Boerrigter has suffered from back problems in the past few seasons, and some doubt whether the winger (who doesn’t like to defend too much) can cut it at the higher levels of European football.
That said, in the SPL, Boerrigter should score a hatful of goals as well as registering a ton of assists.
Derk Boerrigter scored 5 and chalked up 4 assists last season for Ajax, starting 24 times in all competitions.
