Inverness Caledonian Thistle academy graduate Ryan Christie is being lined up for an exit from Celtic – in a potential cash boost for his ex-club (SP).
Christie joined Celtic from Inverness six years ago and the current Scottish Championship club inserted a sell-on clause into the 2015 deal. Celtic could lose Christie for free in January if he does not leave this summer, his contract due to expire in January.
The Scotland international will be available for a cut-price fee but Inverness could still profit. Celtic are believed to be holding out for £5 million, English Premier League side Burnley currently retaining strong interest.
While Christie would likely go for much more than £5 million if his contract had a longer date attached to it, a potential transfer at that price would still provide Inverness with a nice return.
Billy Dodds’ side have started their Championship season with 1-0 wins over Arbroath and Raith Rovers.
