REPORTS today claim Celtic have stuck a transfer bounty of £6million on Stuart Armstrong’s head if clubs are interested in his services this summer.
The club knows the player only has one-year left on his current deal but it looks like they feel comfortable asking for a sizeable fee – considering the amount of cash flowing south of the border.
Southampton have been heavily linked with the midfielder for some time now with Palace and West Brom also interested.
Armstrong and the club have stayed quiet on this front, however, a deal for the player to stay at the club doesn’t look closer at this point.
At £6million he would be a fantastic investment for Southampton, especially when you look at the over-inflated price of players like Stuart south of the border.
Should Celtic receive a bid of this ilk or close to it then they will likely not stand in the player’s way.
