Wolves and Tottenham are tracking Celtic defender Mitchel Frame, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Lowdown: Frame profiled
Frame is just 15 years of age and is a left-back who features for Scotland at Under-16 level.
He is yet to pen professional terms with the Hoops and is highly thought of as one of the club’s next top prospects.
Transfermarkt have him down as an Under-17 player for Celtic, but it appears as if he could be the latest teenager to depart Parkhead.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s tweet
O’Rourke took to Twitter on Monday evening and claimed that both Wolves and Tottenham are tracking Frame.
“Tottenham and Wolves are tracking highly-rated Celtic youngster star Mitchel Frame.”
Football Scotland believe both clubs, along with Crystal Palace, have offered the youngster a three-year professional deal.
The Verdict: Not ideal…
Celtic have lost a number of young starlets recently, and it seems as if Frame could be the next with three clubs keen and offering contracts.
Leo Hjelde is a prime example of a young defender to leave the Hoops without making a senior appearance to then go on to progress elsewhere.
He recently made his Premier League debut for Leeds, and although Frame is yet to turn 16, you’d expect he could be the next to depart Parkhead and breakthrough in the English top-flight, possibly with Wolves.
