Ipswich Town, Barnsley and Reading are interested in Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly.

The 23-year-old is a man in-demand and is also attracting interest from Celtic, Hamburg and Wigan Athletic, according to a report by the Scottish Sun.

Kelly joined Livingston on a permanent deal last summer from Rangers and has impressed for them in the Scottish Premiership this season. He has reportedly got a release clause of just £50,000, meaning the Lions will face an almighty battle in holding onto him this summer.

The former Scotland Under-21 international was born in Glasgow and started his career with Rangers. He rose through the youth ranks at Ibrox but never made a senior appearance for them.

Instead, Kelly gained first-team experience on loan at East Fife in 2016 before spending last season with Livingston. He helped Livi gain promotion from the Scottish Championship and earned himself a permanent move to the Almondvale Stadium.

Ipswich will be playing their football in League One next season and see Kelly as a potential goalkeeping option. The Tractor Boys are expected to be busy this summer as they look to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Championship trio Reading, Wigan and Barnsley, who were promoted last night, are all other potential options for Kelly.

Celtic have been credited with an interest but his chances of breaking into their first-team are slim, likewise with a move to German side Hamburg.

Kelly is a promising ‘keeper and needs to carefully consider his next destination.
