Celtic desperately need a new right back or two this summer, and they continue to be linked with a whole host of names.

The latest name in the frame is Luton Town's Jack Stacey, with The Sun claiming that Celtic want him for around £2million, but face competition from Stoke City.

Stacey, 23, came up through the ranks at Reading, but found first-team football hard to come by with the Royals, making just six appearances.

After three loan spells away, Reading sold him to Luton Town in 2017, and it's fair to say that they'll be regretting that decision now.

Stacey has emerged as a star with Luton Town, playing a key role as Luton won the League One title last season, securing a return to the Championship.

The right back notched an impressive four goals and eight assists last season, and it's no great surprise that he's attracting major interest, just like fellow full back James Justin is.

Luton fans are now taking to Twitter to react to the rumours about Stacey, believing that Celtic offering £2million would be an insult and way, way short of what he's worth.

Hatters supporters think that, if Justin is leaving for a huge fee, then Stacey should too, with many believing that he should be worth at least £10million - which would be a Celtic record.
