Newcastle & Celtic in £2m striker battle - reports

Published Add your comment

Newcastle are reportedly ready to rival Celtic for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes in January.

The 21-year-old has been in potent form this season, having found the net 13 times in 15 appearances for Lee Clark's Terriers.

This, according to The Mirror, has alerted Newcastle and Celtic to his potential availability, and a £2 million bid could now be in the offing.

Such has Rhodes' recent form been, the former Ipswich forward was awarded his first senior cap for Scotland in Friday's 2-1 win over Cyprus.

He could now, it is claimed, be offered the chance by Neil Lennon to move north of the border by signing for Celtic when the transfer window opens.

Alan Pardew, however, is unlikely to give up without a fight as the Newcastle boss looks to bolster his goalscoring department.

Newcastle are expected to add Sochaux hotshot Modibo Maiga to their ranks during the year, but further faces are also expected at St James' Park.
