But while a move is yet to materialise, both Coetzee’s agent Mike Makaab and his club have confirmed Celtic’s interest.
“Yes, there is interest from Celtic. Last week they sent a scout to monitor him in a friendly match in Cape Town. I can’t say more than that,” Makaab told Independent Media.
The Urban Warriors are aware of the interest in the player, but they maintain that they are yet to receive a concrete offer for the Bafana Bafana international.
“Yes, we are aware of the interest from Celtic. The club is still waiting for the official offer. I can also confirm that they did send a scout to watch Rivaldo (Coetzee),” Ajax technical director Mich d’Avray explained.
“We don’t intend to stand in his way. If the offer is presented on the table, I have no doubt that the club will listen to it. At the moment, there is no concrete offer that I know of,” D’Avray confirmed.
