Tottenham and Manchester United in for Celtic kid Daniel Kelly amid tempting wage offers from abroad

Ange Postecoglou could be set to raid his old club with Tottenham Hotspur joining Manchester United in the race for Celtic midfielder Daniel Kelly.

The English giants are tracking the teenager's progress as talks continue with the Hoops over a new deal, with Kelly able to speak to potential suitors from July when he enters the final six months of his contract.

Kelly worked and trained under Postecoglou previously during the Aussie's trophy-laden season in charge of the Hoops, although never made a first team appearance. Spurs' interest would be to bring Kelly into their under-23 and academy setup at the London club, who have kept tabs on the player for a number of years.

German champions Bayer Leverkusen, who have made a formal approach, are among clubs on the continent showing a strong interest in his services as well, alongside Italian Serie A sides Bologna and newly promoted Como, where Cesc Fabregas is assistant boss.

Lanarkshire Live Sport understands Kelly is keen to stay with his boyhood heroes - but the Scottish champions are offering the 18-year-old between three and four times less than what others waiting in the wings are willing to offer.

Highly-rated Kelly could be on as much as £9,000-a-week if he chooses to leave Scotland and should he depart this summer, clubs would only have to pay the Hoops £490,000 in training compensation.

The East Kilbride ace has enjoyed a fantastic breakthrough season with the first team, netting his first senior goal on his debut in a 7-1 win over Dundee at Celtic Park in February, and making five appearances as the Hoops won a league and cup double under Brendan Rodgers.

The former St Leonards Primary School pupil first caught the eye of Celtic playing above his age group for East Kilbride Caledonian Thistle's 2004 team and has been with the Hoops ever since.
