Pundit says Celtic and Shane Duffy have spoken about potential move

SHANE DUFFY to Celtic dominated much of the 2016 transfer window and four years on, the Irishman has been linked with a move to the Scottish Champions. The Irishman opted instead for a move back then to Brighton and Hove Albion but is now set for talks with West Brom. Duffy played 21 times for Brighton last year and could be available for transfer with Dunk and Webster being their preferred pairing at the back.

Speaking to Go Radio, the Open Goal host and ex-Celtic youngster gave his insight on the rumour, stating that Duffy had held talks with Celtic. Ferry believes that it is the type of defender that Celtic need, one that can battle with a target man and come out on top.

The 28-year-old is a hardened pro and he would bring a degree of experience and leadership to the backline. Duffy has Premier League experience and would be an impressive signing for the club, allowing them the ability to play 3-5-2 when need be as well as rotating the backline.

Hopefully there will be more in the next few days about Duffy, even if it is negative then the club can move onto a new target and us, a new rumour.
