    Now that Boli is gone, along with his performance yesterday, means that we're making a serious bid.

    Any left back will do.

    Going on yesterday's performance, we get a decent, capable left back in and I think we are set. This lad was performing at EFL Championship level so should surely be able to do the business up here. I trust the scouting system enough to be confident he'd do a job for us.

    Yeah a pacey left wing back has to be priority and this lad looks just what we knead.

    Is he defensively sound, if not an out-and-out wingback?

    Celtic have had a second bid rejected for Charlton's Alfie Doughty.

    Herald and Times Sport understands the Hoops made a second offer for the midfielder after their initial bid was booted out by the Addicks. However their second attempt, believed to be in the region of around £650,000, has also been kicked into touch.

    We told recently how manager Lee Bowyer admitted they had received an offer from Celts for Doughty, 20, but were not interested in the reported £400,000 fee the Scottish champions had brought to the table. And it is understood they are holding out for more cash, though they still do not want to lose the player.

    Doughty's contract at The Valley expires in June 2021 and Neil Lennon's side could potentially offer the midfielder a pre-contract in January and steal him away for nothing next summer.

    Luton Town have also had an offer rejected for Doughty this summer.

    Deals at this level should be Pete’s bread and butter to be honest.

    That's a proper * second bid..

    Offer a mill at least and see where we're at..

    How much we reckon they're wanting realistically?

    I do think we'll get him for what it's worth..

    This is Pete Lawwell we're talking about mate. No way we increase our offer by 150% at the second bid.

    We will offer the bare minimum Charlton are willing to accept and hope the player pushes for the move in the meantime.

    It will probably happen around the £900k mark that was muted at the outset and if it’s something like that we should just get it done.

    Aye it looks like that..

    Luton aren't a big club but they've bid just like us so clearly other's are interested to the point where we can't * about too long..

    Pay the mill or whatever it is close to that and get him in..

    He looks perfect for us. Young. Rapid. Big. Versatile over 3 position's which we need sorting. Can finish..

    Yeah but John McGinn looked perfect for us and we * about for the sake of hundreds of thousands.

    You'd imagine we've more of a pull than Luton in this instance but if they outbid us we're going to look a bit *.
