Clarets Set to Bid For Celtic Midfielder Ryan Christie
According to reports in the Daily Mail & Scottish Record there are two Premier League teams locked in a battle to sign Celtic & Scotland International midfielder Ryan Christie in the summer transfer window. Burnley and Norwich City are both interested in signing the player who is out of contract in January 2022, this means that Christie is free to enter into negotiations with other clubs this summer.
After losing the Scottish Championship this season, Glasgow Celtic are looking to rebuild the squad this summer which means a number of players look set for the Celtic Park exit door including Kris Ajer (wanted by Newcastle United, Norwich City and Milan), Odsonne Edouard (looks set to join Leicester City) and of course Ryan Christie who also looks to be part of the summer exodus.
Christie, has been performing well at club and international level this season and with four goals and eight assists so far this season he is attracting interest from teams south of the boarder. Newly promoted Norwich City are said to be interested in the midfielder as the City boss Daniel Farke looks to strengthen his playing squad ahead of their return to the Premier League. However they face some tough competition as Burnley boss Sean Dyche looks set to make their move once the Clarets top flight status is officially secured.
