Celtic ‘have had conversations’ with St Mirren midfielder Dylan Reid over a summer move to Parkhead, according to manager Stephen Robinson.
The Lowdown: Reid linked with move
Reid has been strongly linked with a summer move to Celtic, as Ange Postecoglou looks to focus on both the present and future, in terms of new signings.
Now, a new update suggests that the transfer could go through in the coming weeks.
The Latest: Manager confirms interest
In quotes provided by Clyde1, Robinson claimed that Celtic were in talks with Reid over a potential summer move:
“Celtic have had conversations with Dylan, I have had conversations with him and his parents. We want Dylan to stay. We think it is the best place for him to develop which has been proved.
“I will throw young players in and we have done. The boy has a decision to make and we don’t want to put any more pressure on a young kid.
“But we genuinely believe this is the best place for him to develop.”
The Verdict: One for the future
The impatience of the modern football fan means that many want signings for the here and now, but someone like Reid should be considered hugely exciting, even if he doesn’t come in as a starter straight away.
Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?
He has already earned some invaluable experience in the top flight despite only turning 17 in March and he has also won 11 caps for Scotland’s Under-17s.
It is imperative that Celtic always have emerging homegrown talent in their ranks and Reid ticks that box to perfection, having been hailed as ‘excellent’ by former manager Jim Goodwin after his St Mirren debut – perhaps a deal and loan back could be the perfect solution to keep all parties happy.
