Brighton and Celtic in tussle for Nick Powell

Brighton and Celtic in tussle for Nick Powell

Celtic could only manage a draw against St. Mirren on Friday night as they slipped even further behind league leaders Hearts. 

The Hoops will be desperate to ensure consistency and get back to winning ways as they cannot afford to constantly slip up under Brendan Rodgers. Although, it looks as if the Northern Irishman is looking at potential additions, as according to Sun Sport, Celtic are in a tussle with Brighton and Hove Albion for Nick Powell.

Nick Powell finds himself in the middle of a transfer tussle between Brighton and Scottish champions Celtic.

The Glasgow giants Celtic are willing to offer Powell a lucrative contract to tempt him north of the border.

Brendan Rodgers is happy to sort out a deal in the January window or take him next summer.

Although, the 24-year-old can leave Wigan for nothing at the end of the season and is waiting for an offer at the DW Stadium.

THE VERDICT:

Nick Powell has established himself as one of the standout performers in the Championship during his time at Wigan Atheltic, with a move away to a bigger club being just rewards for his efforts.

Indeed, he now faces a tough decision of whether to move to the Premier League or opt for European football and the Scottish Premiership, which could impact his career massively.
