Last Minute Negotiations For Two Players
Manchester United defender Lee O'Connor is in negotiations to join Celtic on a permanent deal, with the Scottish side hoping to tie up the transfer before the transfer window shuts tonight.

Manchester United defender Lee O'Connor is in negotiations to join Celtic on a permanent deal, with the Scottish side hoping to tie up the transfer before the transfer window shuts tonight.

The Daily Record are reporting that Celtic are close to sealing a deal for the player.

O'Connor has been at Manchester United since 2016 and has starred for their underage sides. He was considered a real first team prospect at the club, and had been included in their Champions League last season.

The 19-year old is a versatile player and is capable of playing anywhere across the defence. He has recently lined out at right back for the United U23 side, registering this fantastic assist last week.

United

O'Connor captained Ireland at the U19 European Championships during the summer, leading the team to the semi-finals. He has been named as Stephen Kenny's U21 squad for the upcoming qualifiers, where he he will be expected to play some part in the games.

It is a bit surprising that United are willing to let the player leave on a permanent deal, but this would be a huge coup for Celtic. He would be capable of stepping into the first team right away and his versatility should help him in this regard.

He would join Jonathan Afolabi at the club, his Ireland U19 team mate who signed for Celtic a couple of weeks ago.

Greg Taylor has arrived at Parkhead ahead of his move to Celtic from Kilmarnock for an undisclosed fee.

The two clubs agreed a fee for the left-back on Monday.Taylor has already had his medical with the Scottish champions as all parties attempt to complete a deal before the midnight deadline.

The Scotland international trained with the national team on Monday afternoon before a breakthrough was made between the two clubs.

It is understood Celtic defenders Calvin Miller and Jack Hendry will not move to Kilmarnock as part of the deal.

League One Bolton had also made a enquiry for Hendry but could not get a deal done due to time constraints.
