Celtic backed to sign Alfie Doughty

Alan Hutton has backed Celtic to sign Alfie Doughty, from Charlton Athletic, this transfer window and expects the Celts to get the deal done, according to the Football Insider.

Hutton said: “We’ve spoke about it before, they’re in the market for a left-sided player, obviously Bolingoli moving on to Turkey now, you’ve got Greg Taylor who’s there and he’s kind of the only one – even though James Forrest played on that side.

“They’re looking for a left sided player and he kind of ticks all the boxes – he’s got good pace, it’s a good price, I think, it’s under a million, room for improvement and still very, very young.

“They look desperate to get hold of him so we’ll see in the coming weeks but it looks like a transfer that I think will happen.”
