Celtic target Hull ace
Celtic have set their sights on Hull City winger Cameron Stewart after allowing Dylan McGeouch to go out on loan.
The Express reports that Scottish clubs Motherwell, Hibernian and Ross County are all interested in taking 20-year-old McGeouch on loan.
The midfielder arrived on the scene two seasons ago, but has struggled for a regular first team place and manager Neil Lennon has decided the best course of action is to send the Scotland under 21 international out on loan to gain first team experience.
According to the website, Celtic manager Lennon has received ‘positive reports’ on Hull’s 22-year-old Stewart and is poised to pip Charlton and Ipswich with a £500,000 bid for the winger ahead of next week’s transfer deadline.
Tiger’s manager Steve Bruce has told the young winger that he can leave the KC Stadium this summer, despite having a year left on his contract with the Premier League new boys.
Stewart came through the youth ranks at Manchester United and signed permanently for Hull City in 2011 after spending time at The Tigers on loan.
After a good start at Hull, Stewart was considered one of the most promising young players in the Championship.
However his progress was stalled after a cruciate ligament injury, and he has endured a frustrating couple of seasons which have included loan spells at Burnley and Blackburn.
A move north of the border could appeal to the 22-year-old, as he has family ties in Glasgow and despite representing England at youth level, is still eligible to play for Scotland.
