Celtic need a new right-back this summer and there may be one at Everton worth looking at.
Jeremy Toljan has returned to parent club Borussia Dortmund and long-serving Celtic star Mikael Lustig is out of contract this month.
And the Hoops should certainly take a look at the 22-year-old.
Holgate was an ever-present figure in a West Bromwich Albion side that reached the Championship playoffs last season, starting 21 games after joining in January.
He might not be what Everton are looking for long term, but he could be a fine addition to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, where the standard is lower.
Holgate, who joined the Goodison Park side for £2 million in 2015 [The Echo], is young, quick and, most importantly, available....probably.
If Everton want James, they will certainly listen to offers for Holgate - who can also play centre-back - and Celtic should be in the queue.
Even if Lustig stays, he turns 33 this year. A younger, quicker player is needed whatever happens.
