The Scotsman have reported that Leeds United will make a £1m bid this summer for the Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths.

Still only 24-years old, Griffiths has built up plenty of experience since making his debut at 16 for Livingstone. Scoring 26 goals in 53 games for the Lions, Griffiths was rewarded with a move to Dundee, where he added another 33 goals in 62 matches to his tally.

That attracted the interest of Wolves who signed the Scotland international in the January transfer window of 2010-11. At the time the club were in the Premier League and Griffiths found opportunities difficult to come by and soon returned to Scotland for a loan spell at Hibs.

The goals continued to flow as Griffiths scored 39 in 78 for Hibernian. Having found themselves in League One by the 2012-13 season, Wolves unsurprisingly saw the value in Griffiths and brought him back to the club where he would scored 13 in 31 games.

Yet before long Griffiths returned to Scotland, as Celtic bought him for an undisclosed fee. In one and a half seasons for the Scottish champions, Griffths has scored 25 goals in 52 appearances, taking his overall record to 137 in 276 - as near as dammit to one goal every two games.

Griffiths certainly looks like a player who would add goals to Leeds, but the real question is probably whether Celtic would want to sell him and if they did, would £1m be enough? Here’s the man in action.
