    Celtic are poised to go head to head with Premier League duo West Ham United and Norwich City in the race for Kilmarnock’s Liam Kelly.
    Sportsmail understands the Parkhead club will join the English clubs in sending scouts to Rugby Park for the Boxing Day clash with Hearts.
    Kelly is out of contract next year and up for grabs for a nominal fee in January, or could sign a pre-contract and move for free in the summer.

    Wanted man: Celtic, West Ham and Norwich all want Liam Kelly
    The 22-year-old recently won his first Scotland cap as a substitute in the friendly win over Luxembourg. The midfielder has also raised his profile with strikes against Celtic and Aberdeen.
    Manager Kenny Shiels plans to open talks with him on a new Kilmarnock contract, but it’s understood Kelly — freed by MK Dons in 2009 — is likely to seek fresh pastures next month, with Ipswich Town also interested.
    'I think Liam’s got some time to stay here and it’s important that he stays where he’s learning,’ said Shiels last week.
    'I think he’s due to sign a good contract as far as I know. We want him to stay in an environment that’s good for his improvement and the SPL’s certainly providing him with that.'

    Nowhere near the level we are now operating at.

    Decent player but not what we should be aiming for.

    I think he will end up at a Championship/Low-level EPL team and they just threw us in there because he plays in the SPL.

    Good player, and, positionally speaking, just what we need (i.e. a creative central playmaker), but I'm not convinced he'd cut it at CL level. On the other hand, how many of us, when Scott McDonald was playing for Motherwell, thought he could/would do a job for us in the CL?

    I'd be happy enough to sign him for the SPL, but would he get a game ahead of Ledley, Wanyama, Brown, Kayal? I'd like to think he'd start behind the forwards, but who do you drop when they're all playing well?

    No thanks. We should be aiming a bit higher than SPL level players, I feel, especially after the amount of money we have pocketed in the last year. Money from the CL, TV money, money from Ki and money for winning the title, for example.

    If we're going to be signing a young creative/attacking midfielder, then go for Will Hughes from Derby. I mentioned him the other day too. He has an article on BBC Sport right now praising him and mentioning potential interest from Barcelona.

    Don't need a central midfielder.

    Not a position we need, not of the quality we need.

    Has the potential to be European, if not world class.

    I'd bid no more than 6M for him.
