Scottish Premiership champions Celtic could make a surprise move for ex-Derry City winger James McClean.

The Wigan man, who is currently playing up front for Malky Mackay’s side, is a massive Celtic supporter and if the Parkhead men made a move then a switch, even on loan, could happen.

Reports are that Barclays Premier League side Hull City are also believed to be tracking McClean, with the Creggan man’s former boss Steve Bruce looking to strengthen his squad on transfer deadline day.

One City man expected to move to Glasgow before the window shuts tonight is Michael Duffy.

The Northern Ireland U21 international has flown to Scotland to finalise his move after both clubs agreed an undisclosed fee yesterday.
