According to reports from the Daily Mail, Scotland title holders Celtic F.C have joined Premier League clubs West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion in the race to sign Brighton and Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy.
The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland defender made well over 15 appearances for the Seagulls this season but has heavily been linked via best online casinos in america with an exit move from the AMEX Stadium ahead of the upcoming 2020/21 Premier League season.
Despite being a regular starter for Graham Potter’s side, it’s so glaring that Duffy has fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Joel Veltman from Ajax this summer.
West Brom has been linked with a move for the defender as the Baggies gear up for a return to the top-flight, but now face still competition for his signature with Celtic’s reported interest.

As reported on the Daily Mail website via gooner news, a potential loan move to Glasgow could be on the cards for the 28-year-old, who is said to have held discussions over a one-year loan move with the Scottish giants last week.
However, a suitable loan fee and a deal to match Duffy’s wages are still yet to be agreed, however, the defender is reportedly keen on a move to Glasgow.
Be it as it may, Celtic’s reported interest in Duffy is a big blow for West Brom. The Baggies need to add another experienced and proven defender to their ranks this summer and Duffy certainly fits the mold, however you can see why a move to Celtic would be appealing. They win trophies year after year with a chance to play in Europe Premier League, and that could be a pulling factor for the defender.
