    Preston North End manager Alex Neil insists there has been no contact from Celtic regarding defender Ben Davies.

    And the Scot delivered a brutal shutdown as he insisted the Hoops needed an eight-figure sum to sign him.


    If they were coming to buy him?

    Yeah, well if they’ve got £10 million then maybe. Peter (Ridsdale, advisor to Preston board) would probably tell you £20 million.

    Absolutely not (been any contact) as far as I’m aware.

    Papers linked again but only because they asked Lennon about him and Doughty.

    Seems good by all accounts but Toney has proved that even if they're contract is in the last year, they still go for mental fees.

    It's only a good thing for Edouard's fee next summer.

    The Sun claiming we’re winning the race to sign him on a pre-contract in January

    CELTIC could sign Preston defender Ben Davies on a pre-contract in January.

    Hoops boss Neil Lennon is a long-term admirer of versatile Davies, who can play at both centre-half and left-back.



    But The Scottish Champions face competition from Bournemouth for the £5million-rated stopper.

    However, SunSport understands Celts are in pole position to land the 25-year-old for nothing - with Davies likely to agree terms in January.

    How many players are we reportedly targeting on pre-contract deals in January now?

    How can we be winning a race that doesn't officially start until 1st Jan?

    While you can't have official talks now you can't stop agents talking to clubs.

    Will have some team then!

    In all seriousness it is a market I feel we could better exploit both for exciting prospects and potential first team players in without a transfer fee. I know wages etc but it is a good way to make our limited budget go further.

    I agree, mate. I just wouldn't bank on making those signings the summer before; a lot can change between now and January.

    I totally agree if you were asking me if we don’t sign Davies or Doughty now but wait to get them on a pre-contract do I think they will become Celtic players? The answer would be no.

    I am still not entirely sure how we landed Moussa on such a deal. A bit like signing Van Dijk it seems like an anomaly rather than how things could work out.

    We have made some good signings this time around but we do need to look at how we broaden our horizons in terms of scouting and how quickly we get deals done.

    I think a pre-contract would be perfect, don't really need him just now unless Ajer goes but looks like Ajer will stay and probably go next summer and this guy would be a good replacement.

    He can play left centre back?

    Having him in and welsh out on loan would be a wise move
