PSV make move to sign Rangers target Todd Cantwell

According to a report from Football Insider, PSV Eindhoven are rivalling Rangers for Todd Cantwell after making a surprise enquiry for the player.

The Dutch side are said to be in the market for new players this month after Cody Gakpo’s big money move to Liverpool and could turn their attention to the Norwich City attacker with the Canaries willing to listen to offers. It is reported that new Norwich boss David Wagner will let the 24-year old leave to make room for new recruits.

Blackburn Rovers have also previously been linked with a move for Cantwell, who has fallen down the pecking order at Carrow Road since returning from a loan spell with Bournemouth last season. The Englishman’s other temporary move away from the Canaries came in 2018 when he spent time with Fortuna Sittard in the Eredivisie.

Celtic boss wants at least one more signing before window shuts

The Scottish Sun are reporting that Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou wants ‘at least one more signing’ before the January transfer window shuts. The Hoops have already added Alistair Johnston, Yuki Kobayashi and Tomoki Iwata to their squad this month.

The Australian was speaking after his side’s Viaplay Cup semi final win over Kilmarnock when he said: There’s always the possibility guys might move on for whatever reason. It’s not about me pushing anyone out the door, everyone has decisions to make.

“If something comes on the table one of them feels strongly about it, we’ll discuss it, but right now I’m more about bringing in than letting them go.”
