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.
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.
How many more signings do Celtic need this summer?
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.
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.
