Loads of Celtic fans have been discussing their centre-back situation, and the overwhelming majority of fans polled would rather keep Filip Benkovic than Dedryck Boyata next season.

Celtic are in a quite curious position with their centre-backs, as neither of their first-choice pairing are expected to be at the club in the 2019/20 campaign.

Boyata has been sensational since returning to the team, but his refusal to play in the Champions League qualifiers says exactly what he thinks about his future at the club.

The Belgian international is out of contract at the end of the season, and is showing no signs of penning a new deal.

Benkovic meanwhile has been phenomenal since signing on loan from Leicester, but the Foxes would likely demand a huge transfer fee to sell him permanently.

The Premier League outfit signed the Croatian wonderkid for £13m this summer, and would need to make a tidy profit for selling him to be worth their while.

Fans have been full of praise for the young defender though, and a convincing 73 per cent would rather sign the 21 year-old permanently than extend Boyata’s contract.

Benkovic would definitely exceed the club-record fee that the Bhoys splashed on Odsonne Edouard, and you can view the full poll results down below…
