According to The Express & Star, Celtic could make a move for West Bromwich Albion midfielder Rekeem Harper in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Celtic may make a move for the 19-year-old midfielder with their £3 million deal for Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull hanging in the balance.

 

Celtic recently announced on their official Twitter page that they have not been able to agree with Turnbull’s agent over wages, although a deal with Scottish Premiership rivals Motherwell has been struck.

Harper is out of contract at West Brom this summer and will cost the Hoops £235,000 in compensation fee, according to The Express & Star.
