Nejc Pecnik: Would be happy to come back to Britain

The Slovenia international currently plays for Red Star Belgrade and was voted their player of the year following an impressive 2013/14 campaign.

Pecnik’s performances have fuelled transfer speculation, with reports suggesting that Celtic are keeping a close eye on his progress.

The 28-year-old insists there have been no talks over his future but he would be interested in a move back to England or Scotland.

He previously played for Sheffield Wednesday and would love to prove that he could play in the Championship.

“It is flattering if Celtic are really interested in me,” the attacking midfielder told Sportal.

“Unfortunately I only read about this in media, I have not had any contact with the club.

“But I would be happy to return to Britain, even at Championship level.

“When I was at Sheffield, the manager gave up on me too soon. I'm sure that I could play a prominent role in this league.”

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
