Celtic, along with the likes of Crystal Palace and Leicester City, are monitoring Dundee United defender Kerr Smith, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Lowdown: Smith profiled
Smith is just 16 years of age and is under contract with his current employers for a further two years.
The Scot actually spent a week with Manchester United last year on trial, and it seems as if he could be on the move for good before the end of the month.
How would you rate Celtic's window?
It's been alright!
Not good at all!
The Latest: Monday report
The Scottish Sun shared a story regarding Kerr on Monday lunchtime.
Within their report, they labelled Southampton as the frontrunners for the Scot and claimed that Celtic, Palace, Leeds and Leicester are all tracking the defender.
It seems as if the Hoops are weighing up a potential late swoop for Smith, even though they are also closing in on Shamrock Rovers defender Liam Scales in a deal worth £500,000.
The Scottish Sun are expecting the Dundee United board to move Smith on over the next six days.
The Verdict: Hjelde replacement?
Celtic look set to lose a young centre-back to Leeds in Leo Hjelde, so perhaps Smith could come in to replace the Norwegian going forward.
Smith is regarded as one of Scotland’s best young talents, so down the line, winning the race for the 16-year-old could turn out to be a real coup.
It seems as if Celtic will have to beat a number of Premier League clubs to his services, though, so it could be a big ask in the final days of the window.
