Celtic star claims he would make this ambitious switch by summer after January move failed

Celtic vs Hearts

Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko left Parkhead temporarily last month to join Danish giants FC Midtjylland on loan till the end of the season.

The 26-year-old saw injuries limit his playing time, while the arrivals of new recruitments in the department during the window meant he had become surplus to requirements.

Sviatchenko was targeted by Southampton as they looked to provide defensive cover, but he chose to return home in order to get guaranteed playing time.

However, the Dane is still keen on moving to England in order to fulfill his dreams of playing in the Premier League, and he recently revealed to Danish publication Ekstra Bladet : “The plan is definitely to continue abroad when I have won the championship with FC Midtjylland.

“The ultimate dream has always been the Premier League, but I’m also realistic. I could imagine a trip to Holland, France or the Championship, if there is a bid for me.

“It was already there in the January window, but I didn’t feel it was for sure. There could be three matches and then looking at the bench again.”

Midtjylland currently top the SuperLiga with 7 games to go, and Sviatchenko could be back in Britain to pursue his dreams come summer.

It’s safe to say the £1.5million signing has played his last game for Celtic, but it remains to be seen if he can ever reach the level required to make it to the English top flight.
