  • Celtic keen on England international
  • Hearts injury blow

United youngster interesting elite

Dundee United starlet Kerr Smith is being monitored by Manchester United and Liverpool.

They join Everton and Aston Villa in showing an interest in the 15-year-old ahead of his 16th birthday when he can sign a professional deal.

According to the Scottish Sun, the centre-back could opt to remain at Tannadice and look to progress into the first-team fold.

Gerrard hints at Morelos stay

Steven Gerrard doesn’t think questions around Alfredo Morelos’ future will ever stop.

The Rangers boss, however, has hinted that the Colombian is set to stay at Ibrox, noting the player’s happiness.

He said: “The biggest and most obvious thing I’ve noticed is that he looks happy. He’s smiling, he’s better around the place, he looks focused. His professional attitude has been spot-on.”

Celtic eye England international

Celtic have put a bid in for Tottenham Hotspur star Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report.

The England international is a peripheral figure at Spurs, falling down the pecking order after his £25m move from Fulham last year.

Celtic hope to land the left-back on loan but it could cost as much as £5m. 

Leeds United/Ryan Kent update

Leeds United are more likely to sign Manchester United’s Dan James than Ryan Kent from Rangers.

The Premier League side have been heavily linked with move players ahead of the closure of the transfer window.

According to SkyBet, Leeds are 9/2 to sign Kent and just 7/4 to sign James.
