Celtic to open negotiations for midfield technician as EPL interest intensifies

Highly rated Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal has caught the attention of a number of clubs after an impressive debut season in the SPL.

The 22-year-old Israeli international moved to Glasgow last summer, and has already established himself as a leading star in Neil Lennon's side.

Known for his impressive passing ability and aggressive tackling, Kayal signed a four year deal at Celtic Park upon his arrival, but there has already been calls to offer him an improved deal to ward off interest from other potential suitors.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly been tracking Kayal, with a view to lining him up as a potential successor to Paul Scholes when he eventually hangs up his boots at Old Trafford.

The Glasgow Evening Times reports that the Red Devils are looking to bring additional mettle and steel to their midfield, and have identified the Parkhead ace as the man to fill that void.


But Hoops boss Lennon insisted that Kayal will not be going anywhere, because Celtic want to keep hold of their best players.

"Beram is very happy here (at Celtic). It would not surprise me if people are turning his head a little bit.

"But we've had a chat with him and his agent, Dudu Dahan, and they are very content.

"So we'll sit down with them in the summer and we will look to improve his terms."

With Celtic currently sitting pretty at the top of the SPL, and Manchester United in a similarly strong position in the Barclays Premier League.

Kayal may find himself in a rather unenviable position this summer when two domestic champions vie for his signature, leaving him with a difficult decision to make between staying at Celtic Park, or moving on to pastures new at Old Trafford.
