Kerr Smith will not complete a move to Celtic this month, despite interest in the Dundee United teenager (DR).

The 16-year-old is regarded as one of UK football’s brightest football prospects and has been tracked by every English Premier League league club in the last 12 months. Celtic were added to the list of potential teams ready to make a move for Smith on Monday.

Now talk of a transfer before the end of the summer transfer window have seemingly been squashed. Celtic are interested in Smith but won’t approach Dundee United for him this summer. It is thought, however, that the Tayside club are ready to cash in. But six figures are needed to tempt them.

Celtic were also linked with ‘Tangerines’ goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist. The Swiss stopper was excellent for Dundee United last season and has attracted interest this summer.

But now head coach Thomas Courts faces a nervous wait to find out whether Siegrist faces a spell in the medical room after a knee injury in training.
