Celtic are tracking Drogheda United midfielder Killian Phillips, according to The Irish Independent’s Daniel McDonnell.
The Lowdown: Phillips profiled
Phillips is 19 years of age and joined his current employers earlier this year.
How would you rate Celtic's window?
It's been alright!
Not good at all!
The Latest: Celtic interest
McDonnell shared a story on Wednesday lunchtime regarding Celtic’s interest in Sligo Rovers forward Johnny Kenny.
Within his report, McDonnell claimed the Hoops will watch Kenny in action on Friday against Drogheda before sharing Celtic’s interest in Phillips.
Phillips is attracting attention from overseas, seemingly Celtic, with his long-term future on the pitch reportedly viewed as a centre-back rather than a midfielder.
The Verdict: Another Scales?
Liam Scales made the move from Ireland to Scotland this summer, and it appears as if Phillips could well follow suit down the line.
Celtic saw Scales’ versatility as crucial when bringing him to Parkhead, so Phillips’ ability to play in both midfield and in defence could work in his favour.
He may well have the chance to impress Celtic officials live on Friday during their scouting trip to watch Kenny, and who knows, should he do just that, a cut-price move in the New Year could well be on the cards.
