Stevenage teenager Ben Kennedy 'doesn't think about' potential Celtic or Tottenham move

The 18-year-old has been in fine form for Stevenage in League Two.

Celtic linked midfielder Ben Kennedy has been speaking to the press today about his future, as he gets set to push on for League One with a League Two play-off semi-final with Southend United upcoming.

The 18-year-old has told the Ulster Star that he is not currently thinking about a move to Celtic, or indeed any other team, although feels he could make the step up.

He stated:

“I don’t think about that.

“If something happens then it’s a bonus. I’m just working hard and enjoying my football. Whoever I am playing for, I’ll just be going out to do my best for the club.

“Of course my aim is to play at the highest level. I have confidence in myself and believe that I can.”

The Lisburn native joined up with Stevenage in 2014 and made his debut for the club in January. He has since gone on to score four goals in 15 games for the club from midfield as they finished sixth in League Two - good enough for a shot at promotion.

His excellent form reportedly attracted the interest of Arsenal and Tottenham in March, according to The Mirror - so he is certainly regarded highly.

The Scotsman meanwhile linked Celtic with an approach for the Northern Irishman at the end of April, where he would join the likes of countryman Michael Duffy and Conor Hazard as promising young talents at Celtic Park.

It will certainly be interesting to see if he can guide Stevenage to promotion and in the process put himself firmly in the thoughts of Celtic and other prestigious suitors.
