Celtic have a brace for interest in rookie right-back Jeremy Frimpong, and several English championship clubs are monitoring his status.
Southampton, the Premier League organization, are thought to be keeping tabs on the young defender.
The 19-year-old, who established himself as a key member of the first team he formed at Parkhead – signed a four-year deal when he joined Manchester City last summer.
Negotiations were held regarding the extension of the contract.
But so far there has been no agreement between Fripong and the club.
Frimpong has played 40 times since arriving in Scotland, and has contributed three goals and six assists in all competitions.
He lives alone in Glasgow with his wife and youngest son, a $ 1.6 million Israeli right-back.
And Sunsport Elhamad, 29, understands that the situation is more difficult across the Kovid-19 restrictions.
It is believed that Defender has opened up to club bosses on personal matters.
Sympathy Celts may be ready to hear offers for Elhamid when the transfer window opens in January.
However, his exit will depend on whether they can sign him as a replacement with recruitment head Nick Hammond.
El Hamad began his career with Maccabi-Tel-Aviv so that they could return to his homeland.
The experienced defender signed a four-year deal last summer when Hapoil Beer joined Celtic from Beer Sheva in a $ 1.6 million deal.
The Parkhead Club is expected to charge that fee but they may agree to a loan move for the rest of the season.
