It is reported that Scottish side Celtic will pocket a £2 million windfall following the promotion of Bournemouth to the English Premier League next season. 

Bournemouth gained a return ticket to the Premier League after edging Nottingham Forest 1-0 in the Championship on Tuesday. 

The Scott Parker’s Cherries have cemented their second position in the Championship, just behind leaders Fulham, who have also earned promotion back to the Premier League.

The development comes due to Bournemouth’s signing of Ryan Christie from Celtic before the commencement of this campaign.

Bournemouth paid £2.5 million for the services of Christie, with Celtic including a promotion clause in the transfer agreement. 

Celtic will now take advantage of the deal to bolster their squad in the beckoning and busy transfer window across Europe. This comes as a lucrative business for Celtic after arguably playing their cards well.

To Bournemouth, their 2022/2023 Premier League season budget will be slightly affected, but only after having gained from the initial business. 

The Cherries will finish their season with a scheduled home game against Millwall this weekend.

Scott Parker will be busy in the transfer window trying to reinforce his team ahead of the demanding assignments in the English top flight league.
