Relegated Sunderland are hoping to tie up a loan deal with Celtic for hot prospect Calvin Miller, we can exclusively reveal.
The Scotland youth international has come through the ranks at Parkhead, and is highly thought of at the club.
The 20-year-old made his Bhoys debut in December 2016 but has made only four Scottish Premiership appearances in all.
Celtic are now ready to offer him a new extended contract and then loan him out, with Sunderland leading the chase for his signature.
New Black Cats boss Jack Ross is hoping to use his contacts North of the Border to broke a number of deals, and landing Miller is very high on his radar.
