Report: Dundee want £1m for Celtic target Scott Bain

Celtic U-20s

Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain is reportedly on the radar of Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

Celtic will have to pay as much as £1 million in transfer fee if they want to sign goalkeeper Scott Bain from Dundee in the summer transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

Scottish Premiership giants Celtic have been linked with the 23-year-old as a potential replacement for Lukasz Zaluska, who looks set to leave the Bhoys at the end of the season.

Bain is supposed to provide cover for Craig Gordon and also compete with him for a regular place in the Celtic first team.

On Tuesday, The Scotsman reported that Dundee rate the goalkeeper at around £400,000, but The Scottish Sun now claims that the Dees will look for £1m for the services of the former Aberdeen prospect.

Bain’s current contract with Dundee runs out in June 2017, and it seems that the Scottish club are not ready to let him go on the cheap.

It will be interesting to see if Celtic are willing to splash out as much as £1m for a player who is not going to play much unless there is an injury to Gordon.
