Queen’s Park youngster Lee Connelly has been linked with Celtic, Rangers and Burnley.

Burnley are set to sign Lee Connelly from Queen's Park, according to The Daily Record.

It has been reported by the Scottish newspaper that Championship outfit Burnley were impressed with the teenage midfielder during a training stint over the past five days.

The 15-year-old is now back at his Scottish League Two club, but Burnley are ready to offer him a contract, according to The Daily Record.

It has also been claimed by the newspaper that Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers have tracked the Scotland Under-16 international midfielder this season.

However, it seems that it is Burnley who have won the race to the signature of the highly-rated Connelly.
