Rodgers eyes £3m Celtic summer raid on snubbed Liverpool defender

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is lining up a move for one of his former Liverpool stars in Andre Wisdom this summer, according to the Sun.

Now firmly installed at the helm at Parkhead, the Northern Irishman has been linked with the likes of Joe Allen and Joe Gomez, two of his signings at Anfield, in recent weeks.

However, the Bhoys chief is reportedly plotting a £3m raid on the 23-year old defender after it became apparent he would not have a future at Merseyside under Jurgen Klopp.

Having spent last season on loan at relegated Norwich City, he has also been farmed out to likes of West Bromwich Albion and Derby County.

Able to operate either centrally or in full-back positions, the Reds ace could be a natural replacement for Tyler Blackett, who is due to return to Manchester United following his season on loan in Glasgow.

The former England under-21 international has seen his career stall in recent years after emerging at Anfield under the likes of Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish, and he is unlikely to feature in Klopp’s Kop revolution.
