Celtic could still secure the signing of exciting St Mirren youngster Dylan Reid this week, according to a fresh claim from reliable journalist Mark Hendry.
The Lowdown: Celtic keen on Reid signing
Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed a productive summer in the transfer market, strengthening his squad ahead of what will be a relentless 2022/23 campaign.
One player who has been linked with a move to Celtic but hasn’t yet arrived is Reid, who has caught the eye after bursting onto the scene at St Mirren.
The 17-year-old midfielder has been described as a ‘special’ player by his former manager Tony Fitzpatrick and he could have a big future in the game.
The Latest: New update emerges
Replying to a previous tweet in which he said the deal is ‘back ON’, the reporter shared:
“My understanding is the only sticking point could be clubs agreeing on fee. Market has changed since last time they spoke.”
The Verdict: One for the future
This is an exciting update from a Hoops perspective, not necessarily in terms of the squad being immediately improved greatly, but from a long-term point of view.
Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?
It is always vital to have young homegrown talent in Celtic’s ranks – especially having lost players like Ben Doak to the Premier League – and Reid is arguably one of the most gifted Scottish players of the next generation, having already made six appearances for St Mirren.
He could come in and learn from the more experienced heads around him, gradually maturing into the top-level footballer many expect him to eventually be.
