Celtic are joining the race for Joel Randall of Swansea City (£1.5m)


After the youngster put in an outstanding breakout campaign, CELTIC is keeping tabs on Exeter City winger Joel Randall, according to sources.

Parkhead director Neil Lennon and transfer leader Nick Hammond have their sights on the 21-year-old, according to The Athletic, with a view to formally signing him this month.

Swansea City’s English Championship side are also said to be interested in Randall, who this season contributed eight goals and five assists in 24 games.

It is also said that other EFL clubs are tracking the situation of the striker, and Exeter is thought to be seeking a transfer fee of about £ 1.5 million to get rid of their star player.

After coming through the youth system of the League Two club, Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins and Chelsea defender Ethan Ampadu have both made the grade in the Premier League, which should improve their bargaining role.

Lennon’s squad looks a little low on width, with James Forrest and Mikey Johnston struggling for fitness this season and Southampton loanee Moi Elyounoussi’s deal expiring at the end of the season, and the Celtic manager could be tempted to turn to Randall to complete his squad.
