Stephen Robinson has confirmed that Dylan Reid has held signing talks with Celtic. 

The 17-year-old midfielder had been given permission to hold talks with the Scottish champions after an offer in the region of £125,000 was accepted by St Mirren. 

Reid has been tipped for great things but the next two seasons will be critical if his potential is to be realised. 

First team football seems to be attainable with St Mirren but Celtic can offer a far greater financial package and the prospect of making it through the system to work under Ange Postecoglou. 

Radio Clyde reports Saints boss Robinson saying: 

Celtic have had conversations with Dylan, I have had conversations with him and his parents. We want Dylan to stay. We think it is the best place for him to develop which has been proved. 

I will throw young players in and we have done. The boy has a decision to make and we don’t want to put any more pressure on a young kid but we genuinely believe this is the best place for him to develop. 

There’s other clubs interested in all our young players, at the minute there is only one who have made the board’s valuation (of Reid) so the rest is all speculation 

An obvious compromise would be for Celtic to sign Reid and loan him back to St Mirren, that sort of arrangement has been agreed for Ryan Christie and Lewis Morgan in the past. 

If Reid opts for Celtic he would go into the B team playing in the Lowland League with the UEFA Youth League providing at least six more matches.

    “Better the Devil You Know”! if it was me I’d finish off what Saint Mirren has to offer me. Then I’d know better what was best for me next. Chop and change and you lose your continuity. That can be off-putting, in the long-run, especially. Leave St. Mirrren early and you won’t know what you have missed there. Take everything you can from the and take it with you. Finish what you started and then move on. Don’t give Celtic the quick buck. They made dough on Morgan and Christie. But where are they now? Agree with Robinson on that one!
