Celtic are reportedly keen on making a move for £11m-rated Cardiff City winger Josh Murphy this summer.

According to a report from The Sun, Parkhead boss Neil Lennon tried to sign Murphy during the January window. Cardiff, however, kept hold of their man with Celtic unable to muster up the funds for a deal.

However, the latest report claims that the Bhoys will make another move for Murphy, who is valued at around £11m by the Championship outfit.

The former Norwich City man has two years left on his contract with the Welsh club, but with Cardiff struggling for consistency in their bid to return to the Premier League, the chances of them cashing-in on Murphy come the end of the campaign are very high.


Murphy, himself, has also failed to sparkle this term, scoring just once and adding three assists.

But despite that form, the report adds that Celtic remain interested in the player after they decided to offload Scott Sinclair to Preston.

Bhoys boss Lennon is keen to keep evolving his squad, given the emergence of Ole Firm rivals Rangers as a force in Scottish football again.
