Celtic interest in Ben Davies

Celtic have contacted Preston North End about defender Ben Davies - but manager Alex Neil says he expects him to stay for now. (LEP)

“I haven’t really heard anything (about Celtic) apart from what was in the paper. Ben hasn’t said a word to me about it. He has been good all the way through, this has only just appeared.

Naturally that is subject to change.
