Lots of Celtic fans have been reacting to some transfer news, as the Hoops look set to go head to head with Crystal Palace for the signature of Aaron Hickey.
According to The Sun, Celtic fancy a move for the lifelong Hoops fan, but are facing stern competition from down south. The report claims Crystal Palace are set to outbid the Bhoys with a £1.5m swoop, as they plan to loan him back to Tynecastle for the remainder of the season.
Celtic are said to be reluctant to meet the asking price, but they would receive 30% of any profit Hearts making from the player due to the fact he was released from Parkhead as a youngster, so perhaps that could help level the playing field against the Selhurst Park outfit.
Plenty of fans have been giving their verdict on the links to Hickey, who at just 17 years of age is already showing great versatility, playing at right-back, left-back and even in midfield, per Transfermarkt.

Think Hickey would be a good signing, the lad is showing a lot of potential..
Good going forward n decent defending..
got to remember this lad is only 17!! He’s playing every week for Hearts!
Bring him bk, develop n play, couple years we could have a serious talent on the books🍀

Buy him off Hearts and loan him back there for the rest of the season at least. Keep him playing elsewhere for a season or two. He’s not going to get into our squad yet
