Alan Hutton thinks Celtic might have a battle in the summer to keep hold of this season’s star Bhoy Jeremie Frimpong as there could be a bidding war.

The former Scotland star has been impressed with Frimpong since joining Celtic from Manchester City at the start of this season.

The young Dutch attacking full-back has earned a place in Lennon’s squad with his energetic performances and attacking ability.

Hutton speaks with Football Insider:

“There will be people round about keeping an eye on Frimpong, for sure. He’s exciting to watch and that’s what fans want.

“From the outside looking in, a player who’s playing in my position, it’s good to see players like that – attacking, no fear going forward and getting back, setting up goals.

“He’s definitely one for the future, he’s very, very young, an exciting talent who’s only going to get better.”

Asked if Frimpong may not be at Celtic next season, Hutton replied: “He may not, no.”

Opinion Time

There is no doubt that some club’s will be keeping tabs on Frimpong as his stock seems to only be rising.

Celtic will have to resist in selling him so early in his Hoops career as Lennon can get so much more out of the Dutch full-back.

Frimpong will be a main player next season as it looks like Bauer will return to his own club.
