Southampton confident signing Celtic midfielder Christie; in talks for Dundee Utd kid Smith

Southampton are confident signing Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie.

The Sun says the Scotland attacking midfielder, 26, is out of contract at the end of the year and available for a low price before this window shuts.

Christie could sign a pre-contract with one of his suitors now and go in January, but pals say he does not want to risk being sidelined by Celtic.

Southampton are also trying to agree a deal with Dundee United for highly -rated defender Kerr Smith, 16, who has been chased by a raft of Premier League clubs.

Christie joined Celtic in 2015 following an impressive two-year spell at Inverness.
