Reports suggest that Sunderland winger James McClean could be on his way to Celtic.

As Black Cats boss Paolo Di Canio prepares to make Panathinaikos' Charis Mavrias his tenth summer signing, McClean is preparing to depart for the Scottish champions.

The 24-year old Derry-born Republic of Ireland international had a bright future at the Stadium of Light but Di Canio has already brought in Emanuele Giaccherini from Juventus and with Mavrias on his way, appears to have a limited timeframe on Wearside.

McClean, who has made 70 appearances since his £350,000 2011 move from Derry City, would cost Celtic around £2million.
