Earlier this evening the reports that Tommy Smith leaving the Huddersfield camp to sign for another club were correct but according to reports this evening, it WON’T be to Celtic.

Reports online claim the defender is off to sign for Stoke. Rumours have been rife online among Stokes fans tonight that they’ve managed to get a deal done for the Huddersfield player.

This was followed up by Scottish football journalist Michael Gannon leaving no room for ambiguity when he posted the message about Smith’s Celtic status.

If this is true then Celtic are rolling into another weekend without a first team right back. Kristofer Ajer played in the position against Sarajevo but playing the Norwegian out of position would be criminal.

Celtic have a summer ahead of recruitment and you have to imagine if Smith isn’t coming in, he’s currently looking for a first team right back.
