  • Boyata has not played yet for Celtic this season after being involved in the World Cup

Celtic have rejected an aggressive bid from Fulham for Dedryck Boyata this summer and Rodgers has indicated that the defender won't be allowed to leave the club.

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.

Boyata has won the title in each of his three seasons at Celtic since moving to the club from Manchester City in 2015.

The 26-year-old centre-back, who has 12 months left on his contract, has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent weeks following his impressive displays at the World Cup.

"He is a player that we don't want to lose".


Reports in London claim the Premier League newcomers are chasing the Belgium World Cup centre-half - despite splashing massive cash on Swansea defender Alfie Mawson last week, a deal that could cost up to £20million.

Brendan Rodgers, though, doesn't seem keen to let the player go.

It's unclear whether the player's post referred to the rejected bid from Fulham or was unrelated and just coincidental timing.

"At this stage it would be pretty hard for us to sell him because there is not a replacement there". "I was really interested in bringing him in from a few months back".

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