Defender deal falls through

Defender deal falls through

Celtic's move for Ajax Cape Town defender Rivaldo Coetzee has fallen through after failing a medical.

The 20-year-old had been due to join the Scottish champions in the next few days but a routine medical examination since carried out by them revealed an underlying issue.

"Following a routine medical examination carried out by the Celtic medical department they discovered an underlying problem with his right foot," reports Ajax Cape Town's official website. "The clubs were therefore unable to conclude the deal based on the medical information available. The player will return to Ajax Cape Town for further evaluation.

"The injury has not hampered Coetzee to date having not missed out on any competitive action either for his club or the national team. Ajax Cape Town can confirm that they were not aware of any condition that would have potentially hampered a transfer to Celtic."
