    CELTIC aim to solve their defensive woes by signing Republic of Ireland centre-back Shane Duffy.

    The Blackburn Rovers defender is on Brendan Rodgers’ radar as he attempts to solve the team’s problems in the back four.

    Duffy, who is likely to face France in the Euro 2016 Finals on Monday, was outstanding in his nation’s 1-0 win over Italy during the week.

    He could be the ideal player to plug the gap although new Ewood Park boss Owen Coyle, who signed ex-Celtic striker Anthony Stokes last week, is likely to fight to keep his man.

    Duffy, 24, quit Everton for Rovers two years ago to agree a three-season deal. He was signed by ex-gaffer Gary Bowyer.

    The package needed to tempt Duffy north of the border is not going to be a problem for Celtic who have loosened the purse strings as the club past the halfway stage to ten in a row.

    He made only 10 first team appearances at Goodison Park and was a product of Everton’s Academy system and spent spells on loan with Burnley, Scunthorpe and Yeovil.

    The chance to work with Rodgers at Celtic, play in the Champions League and win trophies may just be too much for Duffy to resist.

    Expect Celtic to make their move as soon as Ireland’s participation in the Euros is over as Rodgers strives to remove the defensive blunders that were so costly in last season’s European campaigns.

    would take him in a heartbeat.

    comfortable on the ball, strong, good in the air and you can guarantee he'll give you 100% commitment every week

    Fun fact - Shane is from the same wee housing estate as Micky Duffy, just beside me.

    Would be strange having two players playing for Celtic from the same street in Derry :smiley-laughing002:

    Would be good signing. Long terms rock at the back and let Sviatchenko do the fancy stuff.

    He's alright but a bit of a bombscare.

    Not Ambrose standard but then who else is.

    I wouldn't really want him as 1st choice but if Jozo has just been unlucky with injuries then this could be good.

    Would be a cracker addition to the squad, him and Sviatchenko partnership would definitely improve us

    Don't see Owen Coyle letting him go, having just joined Blackburn he'll want to keep his best players and he'll see Duffy as one of those.

    Duffy would be instantly our best centre back.
    I was waiting for an Irish player to be linked.
    I would love Jeff Hendrik. Quality player.

    What are the chances of getting Hendrick?
