Noubissie, who was born in Livingston, is eligible to play for Scotland as well as England, Cameroon. He has already caught the attention of Chelsea, Aston Villa, Manchester United, Newcastle and Arsenal but was eventually snapped up by Manchester City for a reported seven-figure compensation fee.

Celtic look to hold on to key figures

Celtic are ready to open talks with Reo Hatate and Liel Abada over new contracts and hope to conclude both deals before the close of the transfer window (Daily Record).

The highly-rated Hoops stars have been attracting a lot of interest this transfer season - including from the increasingly popular Saudi Pro League and Tottenham Hotspur - but Celtic boss Brendon Rodgers is hopeful they will remain in Glasgow.

It is now understood that, despite both having time left on their contracts, Celtic are wanting to reward them with improved deals and increase the length of their stay at the Parkhead club.

The Ibrox side are, however, likely to face fierce competition from Premier League’s Crystal Palace who have already had several offers rejected for the youngster. West Ham and Bournemouth are also watching the centre-half closely.

Edwards won the Euro Championship with England’s U-19 side 13 months ago and recently represented the Three Lions’ U-20 squad in June’s World Cup.
