Scottish champions Celtic are believed to be one of four clubs scouting Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw, according to The Sunday People.

There has been much speculation over the future of Bradshaw, 23, already this month with several clubs being linked with the striker.

It was reported earlier this month that Walsall had turned down a transfer offer for Bradshaw from an unnamed Championship side, believed to be Huddersfield Town.  However Walsall manager Sean O’Driscoll spoke to the Express and Star and denied these claims.

O’Driscoll said: “There is no truth a bid has been made. The club informs me of all offers and nobody has rung to say anything. And if there ever is a bid for one of our players, I will make sure the player is the first person that is told.”

Whether there was a bid for Bradshaw or not, speculation about his future continues to grow.  It is understood that Celtic, Rangers, Preston North End and Birmingham City all sent scouts to watch Bradshaw in Walsall’s game on Saturday.

Bradshaw has scored 26 goals in 50 league appearances for Walsall and is valued at around £500,000.

  1. £500k? Are you kidding, we turned down that in the Summer and he has got better as a player since then. I expect it’d take at least £1m+ and even then, I don’t know if we’d sell in January with our league position as it is. I think it’d take £1.5m – £2m+ to get him in Jan, we’re talking about a 23 year old forward who has scored 1 in 2 for the past 2 seasons.
