Southampton watching Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong

Southampton are watching Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong.

The Scottish Sun says the Hoops are braced for interest in rookie right-back Jeremie Frimpong with a number of English Championship clubs monitoring his situation.

English Premier League outfit Southampton are also believed to be keeping tabs on the young defender.

The 19-year-old – who has established himself as a key member of the first-team set up at Parkhead – signed a four-year deal when he joined from Manchester City last summer.

Discussions over a contract extension have taken place.

But as yet no agreement has been struck between Frimpong and the club.
