Celtic scouts were in attendance during Bristol City’s recent clash with Ipswich Town, according to website ClubCall, potentially looking at Chelsea loanee Tomas Kalas.

The Czech international, who is rated as worth £3.6m by Transfermarkt, ticks many of the boxes Celtic are looking for in a central defender ahead of the January transfer window, say the outlet.

The 25-year-old has been at the London club since he was a teenager but has managed to make just four appearances in total, spending the vast majority of his spell at Stamford Bridge on loan elsewhere.

Much of that has been in the English Championship, completing lengthy and constructive loan spells at the likes of Middlesbrough and Fulham, who he helped guide to promotion last term.

With new rules impacting the amount of players big clubs like Chelsea can send out on loan, he could be set for a permanent exit from the Blues, with the Hoops well placed to offer him a more secure home.

Brendan Rodgers of course is on the hunt for a new centre-back in the next couple of transfer windows, with Dedryck Boyata likely to leave the club and Filip Benkovic set to head back to Leicester City after his season-long loan.

Does Kalas fit the bill?
