Championship outfit Norwich are plotting a move for Celtic scout David Moss, according to a report.

The Daily Record report that Celtic’s head of development scouting has emerged as a prime candidate to take up a role as director of football at Norwich.

The Canaries are looking to restructure their backroom team following the dismissal of manager Alex Neil last week, and are hoping to introduce the director of football role before they appoint Neil’s successor.

Moss has had a major impact within the recruitment network at Celtic, and played a key role in bringing Victor Wanyama and Virgil van Dijk to the club several years ago.

He was also the man responsible for opening talks in the bid to bring Moussa Dembele to the club in the summer, making first contact with the players’ agent Mamadi Fofana.

Dembele has since been a massive hit at Celtic Park, scoring 32 goals from his 45 appearances in all competitions.

Celtic have recently added a new recruitment guru to their own ranks, which could pave the way for Moss to depart for Norwich in the coming weeks.

The Scottish club announced on their official website on Wednesday that Premier League chief Lee Congerton had joined the club as their new head of recruitment.

Congerton arrives at Celtic having had previous spells with Chelsea, Hamburg and Sunderland.

In other Celtic news, a senior man has been ruled out of the potential title showdown with Dundee at the weekend.
