Inverness Caledonian Thistle could be set to profit from a potential move that takes Ryan Christie from Celtic to the Premier League.

It has been reported that the Scotland international will bring the curtain down on his Celtic career this summer (Daily Mail). He initially arrived in Glasgow six years ago from the Highlands, an Inverness academy product, winning several league titles and becoming a regular for Scotland since.

Last month it appeared as if Inverness would lose out on funds from a sell-on clause inserted into Christie’s contract in 2015, with his deal expiring in January. But now they could be set for some sort of boost as Premier League clubs circle, the Parkhead club ready for a rebuild after a disastrous 2020/21 campaign.

Burnley and Norwich City are two of the clubs who are thought to be keen on a transfer this summer for Christie. While his price will inevitably be lower due to the length of time on his current deal, Inverness still stand to make some money on the move. The Highland club finished fifth in the Scottish Championship this season.
