Scottish champions Glasgow Celtic have opened talks with Huddersfield Town over a potential deal for defender Tommy Smith, according to a report published by the Daily Record.

The Terriers are preparing to part ways with a number of players this summer following their relegation from the Premier League last season and have reportedly valued Smith at around £4 million.

Celtic are looking for new right-back options after Mikael Lustig and Jeremy Toljan left the club this summer.

The Bhoys ideally need someone with experience to partner the young Anthony Ralston as an option in the position.

Smith arguably has what it takes to shine for Celtic. In addition to boasting Premier League experience, he has also made over 200 appearances for the Terriers.

At 27-years-old, he is at the peak of his career and could be a huge hit for the Hoops.

Smith is now at the peak of his career and it is unlikely that he will ever get a call-up to the England national team, so now could be a good time for him to move to Celtic.

A move to Neil Lennon’s Celtic would allow him to have the opportunity to experience European football and Champions League action.

A move to Celtic could also allow him the opportunity to potentially win silverware, in a possible transfer that looks ideal for all parties.
