  • Celtic, Sasha Kljestan, Winter Transfers

We’ve talked before that Chivas USA midfielder Sasha Kljestan could be the next big transfer out of Major League Soccer. Well tonight that process seems to be in full motion as SBI is reporting the midfielder is headed to train with Scottish power Celtic, a training session that could lead to a transfer deal.

According to sources, Kljestan has left U.S. national team camp to join Scottish champions Celtic on a trial that could lead to a sale of the Chivas USA midfielder. Sources tell SBI that MLS and Celtic have discussed a $3.5 million transfer that could go through if Kljestan impresses Celtic coaches in the coming weeks.

Most figured Kljestan wouldn’t last all of 2009 with Chivas and this sounds like that will definitely be the case. Hell, it looks like he won’t even be with the club at the start of the 2009 season if things go well for him.

The pricetag seems reasonable and the drafting by Chivas today suggested that they were preparing for his departure from their club.
