Published Add your comment

Celtic's attempts to sign Jordan Rhodes could spark a bidding war between themselves and fellow suitors Manchester United and Newcastle United, according to The Daily Record.

The 21-year-old made his Scotland debut last month and has been attracting interest from the Premier League after scoring 15 goals this season.

But Celtic, who are also interested, are expected to make move to the forward, potentially sparking a transfer battle for his services.

His club, Huddersfield Town, are braced for bids for Rhodes, but insist he won't be sold, despite offers in the region of £3 million expected to be lodged.

Both United and Newcastle have been following Rhodes, but may be scuppered by Celtic, as the SPL side are likely to be able to offer him regular first-team.

United and Newcastle are expected to recruit Rhodes as a future investment, while his might be considered an intrinsic cog to Celtic's hopes of snatching the domestic title off rivals Rangers.

Celtic and Newcastle have previously scrapped over Gary Hooper, while United may turn their attention to Manolo Gabbiadini.
