A number of Derby County supporters have been reacting to the latest reports from The Scottish Sun that defender Nathan Byrne has emerged on Celtic’s list of transfer targets this summer.
Byrne only arrived at Derby last summer from Wigan Athletic, but the 29-year-old was one of their brightest performers in a season of struggle last term in the Championship. In total, the right-back managed to help the Rams record 10 clean sheets and he also provided four assists in his 41 league appearances last term.
According to the latest report from The Scottish Sun, Celtic are keen to add to their options in the right-back position this summer. It is believed that Byrne is one of three players on their radar with Rennes duo Sacha Boey and Brandon Soppy also thought to be on their radar.
Celtic are thought to have a budget of around £30 million to spend this summer and that means that they would have the financial resources to tempt Derby into selling the 29-year-old if they decide to firm up their interest.
