Celtic on verge of signing Republic of Ireland international from EFL club

Defending champions Celtic are keen to strengthen their frontline so that they can sustain their advantage over rivals Rangers - who have been in resurgent form since the arrival of Philippe Clement.

Many fans have been underwhelmed by Brendan Rodgers’ first transfer window and the ex-Leicester boss has assured fans that he is now after ‘genuine quality’ rather than long term projects.

The Northern Irishman has added one player this month in Nicholas Kuhn from Rapid Vienna, but it is expected that the winger will soon be joined by Norwich City star Adam Idah on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Republic of Ireland international is undergoing a medical in London before heading up north in a deal which could prove crucial in the title race. 

The 22-year-old has scored six goals from 28 appearances in the Championship this season, but is tipped to have a huge future at international level where he has a record of three goals from 22 caps.

Rangers edge closer to loan deal for £4m man

Rangers are hoping to strengthen their wide options with the signing of Colombian winger Oscar Cortes.

The 20-year-old moved to French side RC Lens for a fee of £4m in the summer, but has so far struggled for first team football with just four appearances.

Despite his lack of game time with Millonarios in Colombia and has also thrived for the nation’s academy teams - notably winning the bronze boot for his four goals at last year’s U20 World Cup.

Cortes is currently having a medical ahead of the proposed move which is expected to be announced later today.

Aberdeen join Birmingham and QPR in the race to sign former Motherwell man

Managerless Aberdeen will compete with Birmingham, QPR and Rotherham for the signature of Luton Town midfielder Allan Campbell, according to reports from Football Insider.

The ex-Motherwell man signed for Luton in 2021 and was part of the Hatters team which won promotion to the Premier League last season.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan at Championship side Millwall, but could be recalled and loaned out to a new club after a lack of game time. So far this term, the Scotland international has played just 12 times. He has been an unused substitute in all of his team’s last five matches and has not featured in the league since mid-December.
