Juranovic exit talk

Fabrizio Romano has suggested there could be a key exit from Parkhead this summer.

He tweeted: “Croatian national team right back Josip Juranovic is expected to leave Celtic FC this summer as many clubs are following him. Jurankvic is attracting interests from Premier League clubs too after great season for club and country. “
