Celtic FC to face competition for Patrick Roberts


According to reports from the Daily Record, Celtic target Patrick Roberts is also wanted by Southampton.

Patrick Roberts enjoyed two brilliant seasons while on loan at Celtic and it is no surprise to see the Hoops looking to sign the winger on a permanent basis this summer.

However, Manchester City do not seem to be interested in sending Roberts out on loan to Celtic once again and are said to be keen on the 20-year-old to earn some experience in the English Premier League.

Now in a further blow to Celtic’s hopes of signing Roberts, it can be revealed that Southampton have joined in the race to sign the young Englishman and the Saints are believed to be keen on a loan deal, which is likely to be favoured by Pep Guardiola.
