Celtic: Nick Hammond reaches agreement with Liam Shaw - Celtic Transfer Rumours

Celtic have come to a pre-contractual agreement to sign Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Liam Shaw next summer, reports suggest.

Shaw agrees

The 19-year-old has been with the Owls since he was eight years old and has made a name for himself in the first-team eleven years on.

Shaw has been described as a player that “can play anywhere” by former stand-in boss Andy Holdsworth and has been heavily linked with a move to Parkhead for some time, scoring once from 12 Championship appearances this season.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

But transfer guru Nick Hammond looks to have made significant progress in Celtic’s pursuit for the 6 foot 2 Shaw, after Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph revealed that a deal has been agreed in advance.

His report added that they will pay £300,000 compensation to Sheffield Wednesday due to him being a product of their academy.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Shaw is, most certainly, one for the future at Celtic given that he’s only a teenager, and could serve the club for many years.

Of course, this all depends if his player development is nurtured correctly. Pairing Shaw with Celtic first-team regulars Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull, both under the age of 23, the Bhoys are building a competitive, young and hungry squad going forward.

While the 2020/21 campaign has been almost a write-off, supporters have every reason to get excited about next season.

In other news, Celtic set to save over £30k-p/w from wage bill amid Parkhead reveal.
