Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton is a transfer 'target' for English Premier League side Burnley.

The Israeli is out of contract in the summer and could leave Parkhead on the cheap.

According to the Scottish Sun, Sean Dyche is already plotting a £1million move for the star.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon, however, remains a big fan of his player and hopes to persuade him to sign a new deal to warn off any potential suitors.

Bitton has been at Celtic since 2013 and has played a big part in the 13 trophies his side have won since he joined from Ashdod.

While the player is reportedly content to stay in Glasgow, the lure of the Premier League could be too much for Bitton to ignore.

He would scrap it out with the likes of Ashley Westwood, Jeff Hendrick and Jack Cork for a place in the XI.

Bitton has also played for Celts as a centre-half and is considered a versatile star.
