Celtic transfers: Club chiefs hold official talks with target as up to three new additions desired

Celtic will hold talks with Dylan Reid today as they look to seal a move for the highly-regarded young St Mirren left-back.

The reigning cinch Premiership champions are reported to have a agreed a fee of £125,000 for Reid after overcoming fierce rivals Rangers to open talks.

Reid, 17, has been impressive since breaking into the St Mirren first-team picture a year ago and has been capped by Scotland at Under-17 level.

The Daily Record claims that Reid will now meet with Stephen McManus and Darren O’Dea, who are the principal coaches of Celtic’s B team, on Monday to discuss his move. While first-team manager Ange Postecoglou will join via video link from Celtic’s pre-season base in Austria, Reid is expected to be parachuted into the development team at first to continue his football education.

Celtic are still in the market for up to three players despite having already brought in Alexandro Bernabei and Benjamin Siegrist, plus concluding permanent deals for Cameron Carter Vickers and Jota.
