Southampton go for Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie

Southampton are moving for Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie.

The 26-year-old's was an integral part of the Scotland team that qualified for this summer's Euros; and his ability to score goals from midfield appeals to Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The Sun says Christie's contract expires at the end of this year, so Celtic will need to sell or risk losing him on a free transfer.

Norwich and Burnley have also been linked with Christie, the Canaries are preparing for their return to the Premier League under Daniel Farke and reportedly want to pair him with his current team mate at Parkhead Kris Ajer.
