Wolves are not the only club (reportedly) interested in securing the services of the Republic of Ireland centre-back in the summer transfer window, though.

According to a report in The Daily Mail last month, Glasgow giants Celtic are interested in the former Everton defender. It was reported that the Scottish Premiership champions had made an enquiry about Duffy.
