Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie, as reported by The Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Christie’s Celtic career
It seems as if he could well be on the way out of Parkhead, though, and a former World Cup winner seems to be a big fan of the Scot.
The Latest: Palace links
Christie first caught Vieira’s eye during the 45-year-old’s time back in his native France, and it seems as if the Eagles could now swoop for the Hoops midfielder.
The Verdict: Sell
Should Palace come in with an offer close to Christie’s £6.3m Transfermarkt valuation, Celtic should not hesitate to take the money.
The 26-year-old has only six months remaining on his Hoops contract, so he could technically speak with Palace ahead of a free transfer in the New Year.
However, Palace need signings now after 11 senior players became free agents recently, while Celtic could do with the money this summer instead of losing him for nothing in January.
