Celtic star takes ‘humble’ stance on Premier League transfer interest


The 20-year-old has been a resounding success at Parkhead since completing a £3.5m move from Maccabi Petah Tikva last summer with 21 goals in 44 starts for the Glasgow club.

His form has earned him senior international recognition with Israel – starting his country’s last four Nations League matches – as well as reports from several top-flight English clubs showing keen interest in the youngster.

Adaba added fuel to the fire by recently changing agents, but he stressed that he was not focusing on his next move at the moment, insisting that it was important that he stay ” humble” amid ongoing speculation.

“Right now, my focus is on the national team, not the Premier League,” Abada told Israeli news outlet Mako.

“We will do our best (for the national team). There is still a lot of work and the most important thing is to be humble, there are players and coaches who have gone through a lot in their careers. J only trying to play a part in winning.”

Abada made his Champions League debut for Celtic in the 3-0 loss to Real Madrid earlier this month and despite a number of missed chances in the game he believes he can play at elite European level.

“There was a crazy atmosphere and I played against great players. I believe in myself a lot, it’s the first time I’ve played in the Champions League and I’m learning the high pace. I think I am capable.”
