Andy Rojas quizzed on Celtic transfer links as Herediano starlet admits major pull

Celtic-linked Andy Rojas admits he'd jump at the chance to showcase his talents in Europe.

The Costa Rican sensation, 18, has been mooted with a £800,000 move to Parkhead after making history at Copa America by becoming his country's youngest-ever cap at the tournament. Currently on the books of Herediano, the versatile attacker's stock soared again at the weekend when he scored in the Costa Rica Super Cup Final, with his team eventually getting their hands on the trophy via penalties.

Celts aren't the only club interested, though, as the teenager attracts interest across Spain, Belgium and Portugal. Sports director Robert Garbanzo confirmed yesterday that two offers have already been tabled for the rising star and now Rojas has spoken out about his future and links to Parkhead.

He said: "Nothing is known about my future yet. I am happy to win my first title with Herediano. I have to focus on being here until I am told something differently. I have to wait and see what happens. I'm calm, I'm still here in Costa Rica and the time will come, right now, I'm only thinking about being professional. But I have always dreamed of playing in Europe and I hope it comes true.

"Playing in the Copa America was a great experience for me and the coaching staff there told me to keep working and keep my feet on the ground. For me, it was another level and I hope I can keep improving to reach that stage again."
