Crystal Palace are interested in a move for Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie, according to The Daily Mail, as cited by The Daily Record.
Unsurprisingly, a number of Eagles supporters have been reacting on social media to the links with the Hoops ace.
Patrick Vieira has today been announced as the new man in charge at Selhurst Park, and it seems as if he will make the 26-year-old a priority target.
Thoughts on Palace's swoop for Vieira?
I'm more than happy!
We could have done so much better!
Christie’s contract actually expires in January, so Palace could talk with the Scotland international right now ahead of a possible free transfer in the New Year. However, you’d expect that Vieira would want him in the door immediately, especially with Palace in desperate need of new signings after 11 senior players recently became free agents.
Christie, who has played throughout midfield and in attack during his career, has made 142 appearances for Celtic, scoring 40 times and registering 41 assists (Transfermarkt).
Palace fans react
Here is what these Eagles fans had to say in reply, with one describing him as a ‘decent’ possible addition at Selhurst Park.
“They seem to have based this entirely on the fact Vieira wanted him at Nice, and I’m happy to dream with them”
“Make my Football Manager dreams come true, I beg”
“Yes please! Wonderful, committed player.”
“Swear he’s available for like 2m? He’d be decent with us”
