However, it could be one out and one in at Parkhead as Herald Scotland reports that the Hoops are interested in re-starting negotiations regarding a move for Scott Sinclair.

The Bhoys have already had a handful of bids turned down by Aston Villa, but hope to now complete a deal in time to register the winger for the next round of their Champions League qualifiers, the Herald adds.

At Rangers, Mark Warburton has admitted to the club's official YouTube account that he would like to bring Dominic Ball back to Ibrox this season.

The Tottenham man spent last season on loan with the Light Blues, and Warburton suggested that if a move was possible, they would be interested. However, his admission did come with a hint of a warning regarding the likelihood of a deal.

"He settled in really well into the club, he loved the city, performed well for Rangers last year. So if that was an option for us then we would move. But it is not as clear as the media might suggest," he told the club's official YouTube account.

Warburton has also confirmed to Sky Sports News (broadcast August 4th) that he would ideally like two more signings this summer, but is in no rush to get the deals done as he is pleased with the squad available to him. 

"Ideally, we want one or two more," he told Sky Sports News (broadcast August 4th). "Just to get that strength in depth, but they have to add value. If we can do that - all well and good, but there's no great rush. We're happy with what we've got."

The Rangers boss has reiterated his happiness with the squad by telling the Gers' official website that he feels that they have a squad capable of winning the title this term.

"I believe we have a squad which is more than highly competitive. I think every game we go into, we expect to win," he told the club's official website.

Finally, The Scottish Sun reports that Celtic have received a major boost on the injury front as Patrick Roberts is expected to be fit for the first-leg of their Champions League play-off tie, despite limping out of their recent clash with Astana due to hamstring problem.
