Celtic and Southampton look set to fight it out this summer for the Dundee United duo John Souttar and Nadir Ciftci.
The Hoops have already signed Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven from United in January and have been linked for a further swoop for defender Souttar and striker Ciftci, but might have to fight it out with Southampton, who the Daily Record claim are interested in the pair.
Souttar is just 18-years old and is able to play as a centre back or central midfielder. The Scotland U-19 international has a silky touch and is comfortable bringing the ball out of defence and advancing into attacking positions. Here’s highlights of him in action in a match from last season.
Nadir Ciftci started his professional career at Portsmouth before brief spells at Kayserispor in Turkey and NAC Breda in Holland. Since signing for Dundee United in the summer of 2013, he’s settled down, scoring 14 goals in 40 games this season. Watch his highlights reel below.
