Celtic are keen on signing Ross County youngster James Graham, with Manchester United and Wolves also showing interest in the attacker, The Scottish Sun report.

The teenager had a trial at United in March, reportedly impressing coaches.

Graham also spent time training at Liverpool’s academy back in October.

The Scottish Sun believes that the Red Devils would like him to return to Manchester when the ongoing public health crisis subsides but that Celtic have now also joined the race for his signature.

It’s said that Graham has earned rave reviews featuring for County’s under-16 and under-18 sides.

Head of Football Operations Nick Hammond and manager Neil Lennon have recruited plenty of young talents to the club over the last 12 months in an effort to boost our ability to blood in quality prospects to our first-team.

Jonathan Afolabi, Lee O’Connor, Luca Connell and Jeremie Frimpong have all signed up to the Celtic cause with the latter player making a huge impression in Neil Lennon’s starting eleven.

Graham is still just 15 so a long way away from senior action, though surely his path to the first-team would be clearer at Celtic Park, rather than Old Trafford.

This is a situation unlikely to develop further until there’s a more positive outlook when it comes to football in general but he’s a name worth keeping an eye on heading into the summer.
