Wolves have made an approach to sign Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain as they look to take advantage of his contract situation, according to a report.
The Sun claim the Championship leaders are firmly in the market for the 26-year-old, who is on loan at the Hoops for the rest of the season until his deal at parent club Dundee expires.
It is said that Stoke City are also keen to land Bain amid doubts over the future of their own number one Jack Butland, who is on the radar of Liverpool and Arsenal.
Bain has taken advantage of injuries to Craig Gordon and Dorus De Vries to make a strong impression for Celtic in their last three matches, and kept a clean sheet in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Ross County.
Football Insider verdict:
What a turnaround it has been for Bain in the last few weeks. His career was going nowhere until he was catapulted into the Celtic side for the Old Firm clash and responded with a man-of-the-match performance in a memorable 3-2 win. Now, Bain is a player in demand and his contract situation makes him an attractive target for clubs wanting an in-form keeper with good experience and who would arrive without a transfer fee. Bain has said he would love to stay at Celtic, but his priority should be to sign up with a club where he can expect to be the first choice, rather than spend any more time on the sidelines.
