Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers must surely be looking to bolster his full-back options in the summer with Kieran Tierney the only available left-back to hand and the poor form of his right-backs.

Mikael Lustig appears to be getting worse every week and Cristian Gamboa could not buy a game after failing to impress since moving to Glasgow from West Brom.

The Bhoys will be able to kill two birds with one stone in the summer though if they managed to sign up Barnsley full-back Andy Yiadom, who would be available for free and can play on both sides of defence.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that Leeds United are in the hunt to sign Yiadom, 26, once his contract expires at Oakwell within a few months’ time.

It was said that Premier League clubs Huddersfield and Swansea were both interested in the one-time Ghana international, which proves he will be more than good enough to provide a solid back-up option, if not in the first-team, for the Hoops next season.

Yiadom has played at both left and right-back for Barnsley this season, making 26 appearances in all competitions and supplying three assists.

After Emilio Izaguirre was sold in the summer, Tierney is the only left-back available to Rodgers unless he was to pluck Calvin Miller out of the development squad.

At right-back, Lustig and Gamboa have been under-fire for their displays and there’s a chance that latter could leave Celtic Park in the summer due to his severe lack of game-time.

In other Celtic news, fans lost their minds over the display of this Hoops ace against Motherwell, with one saying the is better than Lionel Messi.
