Celtic have confirmed their interest in signing St Patrick's Athletic forward Darragh Markey.

The 18-year-old Dubliner is travelling over to Glasgow for a bounce match on Sunday.

Markey is believed to have attracted the interest of several Premier League clubs but Celtic are hoping to steal a march on them and has been given perision by St Pat's to travel.

Markey's agent, Gerry Carlile, said: "He will go over for one day for a game. He will have a look at them and they will have a look at him.

"There are a lot of clubs interested in him. He is still a St Pat's player but we will see what happens."
