Another Celtic player could leave after Liel Abada

It looks like it is only a matter of time before Liel Abada completes his Parkhead exit. Rumours have claimed that Celtic have already accepted an offer from MLS side, Charlotte FC, and there have been suggestions that the winger has already completed his medical as well. To be honest, him leaving might be best for both parties involved.

Abada might not be the only player set to leave Celtic in an out-of-window move though. Another exit seems to be on the cards for the Parkhead outfit.

As reported by Football Insider, Yuki Kobayashi could be the second player from Celtic to agree an out-of-window transfer. He is also exploring a move away from Parkhead after being told he is free to find a new club by Brendan Rodgers.

Not too long ago, it looked like HJK Helsinki were going to sign him on a loan deal. But that move did not end up materialising and the Japanese centre-back might have to look elsewhere for a route out of Glasgow.

Kobayashi was signed by Celtic last year, while Ange Postecoglou was still the manager of the club. But the Japanese centre-back did not really convince after arriving and Tomoki Iwata had moved ahead of him in the pecking order by the end of the campaign.

Since Rodgers' arrival in the summer, Kobayashi has not played a single minute of competitive football for Celtic. So, it is pretty clear that he is not in the manager's plans and needs to move elsewhere if he wants to play regularly.

It remains to be seen whether Kobayashi can engineer a move away from Celtic Park over the coming months in an out-of-window exit. Otherwise, expect the Japanese centre-back to move on in the upcoming summer transfer window.
