What's everyone's views on the liklhood of Christie signing?

Hard to see him break into the Celtic team, but would they let him go to us?

I hope we make a serious effort to sign him. He links up incredibly well with McLean and Shinnie.

£500k secure it?

Season long loan at best. No chance of getting him on a permanent deal.

Not a chance in hell we'll be able to sign him permanently. McInnws will be trying to get him loaned again next season I'd think.

Tims paid £550k for him according to his Dons hating father.

I'd be happy for one of our lot to spend up to that many pounds to make him a Don.

Or a season long loan will have to suffice.

His old man is perfectly placed to advise him about wasted time a Celtic...I think he'll sign for us.

Think he could get a move down to English Championship for a lot more money than Aberdeen can offer if he was to leave Celtic.

 

Another years loan from Celitc to piss of Rangers more likely.

2 threads, damn,

 

as per the other thread, I don;t think Celtic will let him go at this point.

 

They'll move out GMS and Commons etc first.

Season long loan is no use.
Definitely lose him for 4 games, probably 6.
Unless an unlikely deal can be struck with Brenda to allow Christie to be able to play against his parent club.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

Looks like he's enjoying it. Pooder aff a tidy's back for his Da and it might be confirmed. Him or Niall, Ryan or Ash? He wins every time.

A season long loan even if he cant play against Celtic would be better than nothing. How handy was it having him last night?

Sure Caley will also have a 10/20% sell on clause so doubt the tims would sell him to another Scottish team for same as they paid when they can likely sell him down south (just because he's a Celtic player) for more.

His valuation if he played for any other side in Scotland other than them would be a fraction of the price they can ask/hold out for.

Absolutely no chance of getting Christie so we better stop getting hopes up.. More chance of signing Mackay-Steven..Even if we could afford a 500k fee, we couldn't afford his wages. If Christie moves it will be to England.

Celtic will be signing two decent midfielders in the summer, pushing Christie even further down the pecking order. Yes he'll be on big bucks at Celtic but so would have McGinn have been, didn't stop him coming here

Yes but McGinn didn't come here straight from Celtic.

 

I think Christie probably still has unfinished business there and its clear Brendan is happy giving chances to guys like McGregor etc

 

So Christie could come back into their match day squads if they ship out a few of the older guys who are just cannon fodder such as Commons and GMS. I'm sure there are more too.

McGinn did come straight from Celtic, he was only on loan at Brentford.

I think we will see Christie in a Dons shirt next season. Not sure on what basis though.

He's not really kicked on at Celtic though and he's started something like a half dozen games for them in 2 seasons so wouldn't be completely unrealistic for his next contract to be for a bit less.

Why he'd want to do that half way through a contract rather than at the end, I'm not so sure though.

He has a bird here now but that's not going to keep him sadly, no chance he is staying.
