Celtic are reported to have a ‘real opportunity’ to sign Alfie Doughty after new owners took over at Charlton Athletic.

Lee Bowyer claimed that Celtic had had an offer rejected for the left-sided player who broke into the first team last season as Charlton were relegated after one season in The Championship.

The new owners will have to decide whether Doughty is of move value to their bid for promotion or whether they should cash in with a fee likely to be over £1m.

A left wing-back appears to be Celtic’s transfer priority with Greg Taylor struggling to switch from left-back to a more advanced role.

Wing Jonny Hayes released at the end of last season and Boli Bolingoli sent out on loan Neil Lennon is very limited for options on the left hand side.

Celtic have already spent the best part of £13m to sign Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti and David Turnbull with loan fees paid out for Shane Duffy and Moi Elyounoussi.
