Scottish Premiership giants Celtic have renewed their interest in signing Derby County defender Lee Buchanan during this month’s transfer window. This is according to the report from Derbyshire Live which stated that the Derby County left-back is in high demand and that the duo of Premier League side West Ham United and Scottish club Celtic are back in the running for him during this winter transfer window. Celtic and the Hammers had previously been linked with the player.


Buchanan is attracting interest from other teams apart from Celtic and West Ham United. The likes of Championship rivals Nottingham Forest, Belgian top flight team CercleBruggeand Premier League team Watford are also interested in the 20-year-old while teams in the German Bundesliga are not left out.

Derby County are determined to keep Buchanan at the club beyond this season. His current contract will expire this summer but the Rams have the option to extend it for another year.

Buchanan emerged from the academy at Championship club Derby County before making his debut for the first team. He has played 15 times for Derby County in the Championship this season.

Derby County manager Wayne Rooney has been impressed with the impact of Buchanan on his team and that he’s already a top player at the start of his football career. The Manchester United legend would be keen for him to stay at the club.

Celtic are one of the clubs interested in Buchanan as manager Ange Postecoglou is not entirely happy with his options at left-back. Greg Taylor is not certain as the first choice left-back while the future of BoliBolingoli is unclear. Reo Hatate can do a job at left-back but adding a specialist left-back like Buchanan would go a long way in solving the left-back issues at the club.
