Lyndon Dykes looking for 'bigger club' amid Celtic interest


Lyndon Dykes has said that he’s ready to play at ‘a bigger club’ as speculation mounts over his future.

The Livingston striker has done exceedingly well this term after scoring nine and creating eight goals in 25 appearances.

That has led to plenty of interest in his services with Celtic, Rangers and a host of Championship clubs said to be keen.

The Scottish Sun have reported that Livingston have slapped a £2million price tag on the striker’s head, with a view to attracting potential offers this summer.

Such speculation over his future is bound to affect the frontman, but according to Dykes he’s taking any links with a pinch of salt.

Speaking to The World Game, Dykes said: “There’s been a bit of talk and a few clubs interested but I’ve not heard anything (concrete).

“It’s good to be talked about but I don’t read too much into it.

“I’m really enjoying my time at Livi (Livingston).

“But I’m also confident I can push on and reach an even higher level at a bigger club.

“I’m backing myself internationally as well and I think I can keep learning and improving.

“I want to look back when I retire and know that I’ve pushed as hard as I can in my career.”

GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…

It could be a busy summer for Lyndon Dykes.

The striker looks almost certain to move on before the start of the new season after a very impressive season.

Whether he’s playing at the top end of the Scottish Premier League or in the Championship next term, it’s going to be a big step up for Dykes and he has to be ready.
