Barca's Sylvinho interested in move to Celtic

October 19, 2008

Barcelona left-back Sylvinho admits he would be interested in a move to Celtic, paving the way for a January swoop by the Scottish champions.

The 34-year-old Brazilian has barely featured for the Catalan giants this season, while Celtic could be tempted by the opportunity to bolster their options in the left-back position.

Former Arsenal full-back Sylvinho told the Scottish Mail on Sunday: "If there was an official offer, and we could agree terms, then I would be very, very excited about a move to Glasgow.

"If there are people at Celtic who think well of me as a footballer, then I'm pleased. I still have a really good relationship with Barcelona and I love it here.

"But I have still got a lot to offer in football terms on the pitch, not just as a squad member. Let's just wait and see what happens.''
