Celtic winger Michael Duffy is set to go out on loan to another Scottish Premiership team next season, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claim the 21-year-old has been targeted by up to six top-flight clubs in Scotland, with Motherwell and Ross County among those keen on the youngster.

It is said that Celtic will allow Duffy to get first-team experience at a rival club after deciding he would benefit from another spell on loan.

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international has spent this season on loan at Championship club Alloa and has been a mainstay of the team.

Duffy has made 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and supplying one assist.

He joined Celtic from Derry on the last day of the January transfer window last year but has yet to make an appearance for the Hoops first team.
