Shane Duffy

Ahead of tomorrows Champions league second round qualifier second leg with Lincoln Red Imps Celtic are being linked with Ireland defender Shane Duffy.

Reports today are saying the 24 year old is a priority for Hoops boss Brendan Rogers but he faces competition from Swansea and West Brom for the Blackburn player.

It's understood Celtic are prepared to offer winger James Forrest as bait to land the Derry man who became an Ireland regular during Euro 2016.
