Simon Ferry has told GoRadio that there could actually be a deal going on in the background of Celtic Park to bring Shane Duffy to the Scottish Champions.

The Republic of Ireland defender has been the talk of Celtic twitter for the last few weeks now and nobody thought anything of it, but as rumours became reality when the news broke that Lennon and Duffy did indeed have some sort of discussion about the Brighton player moving to Celtic on loan, Hoops fans got excited by the idea.

Duffy is the kind of player Celtic need at the back as his strength and no nonsense technique could rub off on both Ajer and Jullien.

Duffy is surplus to requirements at Brighton and although the ideal scenario would be that the Irishman is brought in on a permanent deal, it would be out within Celtic’s financial reach to make it happen but a loan deal could be more realistic.

Developments are still ongoing on this potential deal and hopefully we can get it over the line.
