Celtic are among a number of European giants keeping tabs on Gillingham goalkeeper Joe Walsh.

The young stopper, 17, has been watched by the Hoops as well as a host of other clubs.

Manchester City, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and RB Leipzig are all understood to be interested in the player.

The 6'4" keeper played 90 minutes for the Gills against Spurs under-21s on Tuesday night.

He kept a clean sheet and impressed visiting scouts.

Walsh - who turns 18 in July - recently signed his first pro-contract with Gillingham.

He is dealt in until 2022.
