CELTIC are braced for interest in rookie right-back with a number of English Championship clubs monitoring his situation. English Premier League outfit Southampton are also believed to be keeping tabs on the young defender.

As a teenager without any competitive football to his name the Dutch born kid will be one of the lowest paid players in the Celtic first team squad.

Celtic will be reluctant to sell Frimpong in January especially with a doubt over Elhamed’ future with his family back in Israel.

After a net spend of around £15m during the summer transfer window Celtic are likely to be in selling mode next month as they try to balance the books without football.
