Celtic: Hoops make Nathan Byrne enquiry - Celtic

Celtic have made an enquiry to Derby County over a potential move for Nathan Byrne, according to The Daily Record.

The Lowdown: Byrne profiled

Byrne is mainly a right-back but can also play as a left-back or a right-midfielder. The 29-year-old has just 12 months left on his Derby deal and is currently valued at £1.35m by Transfermarkt – the highest of his career.

He’s made 184 League One appearances and 148 Championship appearances – becoming a regular for the Rams last season.

The former Tottenham youngster, described as ‘vocal’ by journalist Ryan Conway, is on £8,900-a-week with Derby.

The Latest: Recent report

The Daily Record shared a transfer story on Celtic on Wednesday evening after the Hoops announced the signing of centre-back Carl Starfelt.

They suggested that Sheffield United right-back George Baldock is a top target, however, the question has also been asked to Derby regarding Byrne.

The report adds that Celtic’s scouting staff flagged up a possible swoop for Byrne, but Ange Postecoglou is yet to give a transfer the green light.

The Verdict: Down to Ange

Postecoglou has reportedly watched footage of a number of right-back targets, and with no director of football in place to bounce ideas off, a new signing will of course be down to him.

Byrne could well be the cheaper option over Baldock, with a £3.15m difference in Transfermarkt valuations.

However, with Celtic selling Kristoffer Ajer to Brentford for an initial £13.5m, there should be plenty of funds to bring in a senior right-back as soon as possible.
