CELTIC’S chances of landing Wanderers’ Luca Connell appear to have been boosted after the midfielder was spotted at Parkhead with his parents today.

An eagle-eyed supporter grabbed a snap of the 18-year-old being given the VIP treatment by Celtic’s chief executive Peter Lawwell.

Connell received a tour of Parkhead and Celtic’s facilities but claimed earlier this week that thought it would be an “honour” to play for the SPL champions, he had not yet decided on where he will be playing football next season.

Several clubs have been chasing his signature but it is known that Celtic have been in dialogue with Wanderers over a fee for more than a week.

Sources at Bolton deny Connell can go ‘on the cheap’ – with a cross-border development fee of £250,000 mentioned in several reports.

The academy graduate is not a full professional but is contracted to the club until next summer as a third-year scholar.
