CELTIC ARE PREPARING to offer £1.5million for Irish striker Eoin Doyle, according to reports in Scotland today.

The former League of Ireland player has been a success since joining League One side Chesterfield, scoring 22 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions this season.

The freescoring 26-year-old is also rumoured to be wanted by Sheffield United and Derby County among others, though Celtic are expected to make the first offer.

Should he move to the Hoops, it would be his second spell in Scotland, having previously been signed by Pat Fenlon at Hibs, though he was often played out wide rather than up front and thus, struggled to match his impressive scoring feats in Ireland.

Of Doyle, Chesterfield boss Paul Cook said: “We’re looking to add players to our squad, to make us more successful. If someone makes us an offer which changes that view, then it will change.

“But it hasn’t happened. At the clubs I’ve managed, I’ve learned that there are always bigger clubs than you.

“We can’t do anything about the speculation but we won’t be bullied. If we feel an offer is good for us and for him, he’ll go and if not, we’re lucky to have him in our squad.”
