Steven Fletcher is prepared to turn down a deal at Stoke City to instead sign for Celtic, according to reports.

The Scottish Daily Mail claims the former Sheffield Wednesday striker is willing to reject a two-year deal worth £18,000 a week at Stoke to instead join the Scottish champions. They reckon Celtic have offered him a one-year contract and talks are taking place, although a deal hasn’t been agreed.

The report says the 33 year old is interested in Celtic but wants a two-year deal.

Wednesday were keen to keep hold of their top scorer but the target man turned down a contract extension so he could leave when his deal expired at the end of June.

Fletcher, who has also been linked with Derby County and West Brom, scored 13 goals in 30 games for Wednesday this past season – and 38 from 100 starts and 36 substitute appearances in total since signing from Sunderland four years ago.

The 33 year old began his career at Hibs before a £3m move to Burnley in 2009. He moved on to Wolves before Sunderland paid £12m for him in 2012.

Michael O’Neill is looking to strengthen his Stoke side for the 2020/21 campaign which is scheduled to kick off on the weekend of September 12.

Stoke should go into that campaign with some confidence after an impressive end to last season. Their 4-1 win at Nottingham Forest on the final day, July 22, lifted them to 15 on a run of ten points from four games.
