Celtic haven’t completed the signing of Ben Davies from Preston despite yesterday’s claims from Sky Sports News.

In mid-afternoon Anthony Joseph Tweeted that a pre-contract agreement had been signed with the hoops hoping to agree a fee with Preston to secure the move this month.

That was quickly denied by some other reporters, tellingly there was no comment from Celtic.

Davies is out of contract in the summer but remains a regular in the Preston defence as Alex Neil tries to push the club into the play-off places.

Bournemouth have been linked with the 25-year-old and have completed the signing of team-mate Ben Pearson in similar circumstances.

Chris Jullien looks like being out injured until sometime in April, with Jeremie Frimpong sold to Bayer Leverkusen Kris Ajer looks like being moved to right-back.

Over the last two matches Shane Duffy and Nir Bitton have been paired in central defence.
