    Celtic have entered the race to land West Bromwich Albion contract rebel Rekeem Harper.

    Neil Lennon travelled south to watch the 19-year-old midfielder make a late substitute appearance in the English Championship semi-final defeat to Aston Villa.

    And Sportsmail has learned that Harper and his representatives were in Glasgow to watch Sunday's win over Hearts and the presentation of the SPFL trophy after a VIP tour of the club.


    Tracked by Celtic's head of recruitment Lee Congerton before his recent departure for Leicester City the former England under-19 international is out of contract this summer.

    Both Tottenham and Norwich City are interested while West Brom confirmed on their official website that they have made a second and final contract offer to the youngster.

    Seems to be rated highly and still very young. Would only have to pay a small development fee as well so could be a good signing.

    Hope this happens. Good to see the club are wanting to do business early. Can't afford a saga like last year.

    The guy that sits in front of me flew up from Birmingham on Sunday, he recognised the Celtic players liaison officer on the flight but not the player himself. So he was definitely at the game on Sunday.

    No idea how good he is, but why are we inviting a guy up when we have no permanent manager and no head of recruitment?

    Like Shved and Bayo they are “club signings” with an eye to selling on as the rat said in January

    The scouting team don't stop working and wait while a manager is being looked for, by all accounts groundwork for the dembele deal was done before rodgers came in, same with getting gordon in.

    Everything we need, another midfielder "for the future". Is not as if we had three young midfielders from the academy rocking last weekend. Meanwhile, do you think we are going to renew Lustig's contract or play the champions league qualifiers with Ralston?

    100% need to do business early! Traditionally we never do but all of the right signs are there at the moment (even without a perm manager in place) so fingers crossed this year is the year we get our transfer business sorted early.

    Whatever about not having a manager or having other lads in the academy, this lad seems to be an opportunity too good to turn down. It's another Dembele situation, even if he turns out to be absolutely useless, which seems unlikely, it's a cheap gamble.

    Get him signed.
