Celtic's deadline day transfer move 'called off' as talks collapse

Celtic’s deadline day move for St Mirren youngster Dylan Reid has been called off after the clubs failed to agree terms.

The Hoops opened talks with the Paisley side over a possible transfer for the 17-year-old midfielder earlier in the window but were unable to get it over the line.

Celtic returned to the table in recent days but have now walked away from the deal, according to the Scottish Sun, after the clubs were unable to negotiate a fee.

He has made six appearances for the senior side to date and has four caps for the Scotland Under-17 side.

While the Reid deal may have collapsed, there is still the possibility of at least one new arrival at Parkhead on deadline day.

According to reports, an agreement has been reached for the signing of Danish midfielder Oliver Abildgaard from Russian side Rubin Kazan.
