Report: Celtic, Reading and Huddersfield had scouts watching Walsall's Bradshaw


Celtic, Reading and Huddersfield Town have been linked with Walsall’s Tom Bradshaw.

According to the Mirror, Celtic were one of three clubs who had scouts present to watch Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw in action against Brentford at the weekend.

The British newspaper named the Hoops alongside Championship duo Reading and Huddersfield Town as those watching the talented striker as Walsall pulled off an FA Cup upset against the Bees.

“Celtic were one of three clubs who had Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw watched at Brentford on Saturday. Reading, who sold Nick Blackman to Derby last week, and Huddersfield also checked up on the 23-year-old (above), who is rated at around £500,000,” the report states.

Bradshaw has been in fine form for the West Midlands club this season, scoring 12 goals in 25 starts as his side currently challenge for automatic promotion at the top of League One.

The 23-year-old’s dynamic performances have not gone unnoticed, first with an international call-up with Wales followed by an ensuing January bid by an unnamed club.

As published in a recent report by HITC, Walsall rebuffed the offer and while reluctant to let him leave, the club know that the player has a number of suitors and are bracing themselves for further bids.

Celtic need some extra firepower in their squad and importantly Bradshaw’s age means he most certainly has his best years ahead of him, an important factor for boss Ronny Deila.

The Scottish champions, however, face competition for his signature as both Reading and Huddersfield pose interesting propositions for the League One hotshot.
