Another League of Ireland starlet may be about to make the move cross-channel.

St Patrick's Athletic's Darragh Markey is a target for Scottish Champions Celtic. The Dubliner is expected to travel to Glasgow this weekend for a trial game.

The 18-year-old was primarily a squad player for Liam Buckley's side last year making a handful of appearances off the bench. The former Cherry Orchard star has played at numerous level for Ireland underage and schoolboy sides.

Celtic are in action this weekend in the Scottish Cup Fourth Round away to Stranraer.
