For those who follow Celtic, this transfer window has been full of turns and turns.
The club was anticipated to bolster considerably ahead of it after a dismal run of results. Rather, just a single signing has occurred, and that too at a position that did not require reinforcements in particular. Instead, it seems that outgoings have received the majority of attention.
One player who appeared set to depart Celtic at the beginning of the new year was Rocco Vata. Although the young player had excelled for the B Team, Brendan Rodgers’ appointment as manager in the summer had prevented any opportunities for the main team for him.
Celtic’s issue is further exacerbated by the fact that Vata has six months left on his contract. Additionally, there had been rumors that he was in negotiations to move to a few Italian clubs.
But in the last week or so, things have taken a drastic turn. Vata faced Buckie Thistle in his first senior appearance of the year. And he quickly proved his argument by netting Celtic’s first goal. It appears now that he has experienced some change off the field as well.

Anthony Joseph tweeted that Celtic has started contract negotiations with Vata. The club’s management has started talking about the potential of extending his stay in Glasgow with his representatives at CAA Base. If the perfect opportunity presents itself, he is thought to be eager to stay.
Vata has always been thought to possess the skill to consistently play for the senior squad. It would be advantageous for the team if he decided to extend his contract.
What the future holds for Vata is yet unknown. Will he have additional opportunities in future games as well?
