Ivan Toney’s potential switch to Celtic could all hinge on this evening’s Sky Bet Championship play-off final between Brentford and Fulham.

The Bees have already had a bid of around £6million plus add-ons booted out by Peterborough and are expected to return to the negotiating table.

Celtic have also had a bid rejected by Posh for the prolific hitman, around £5million plus further benefits.

A win at Wembley this evening would see Brentford win promotion to the English Premier League and they could then make an even more significant offer for the striker. It would also mean a higher level of football for Toney, 24.

Herald and Times Sport understands everything could change should Brentford win this evening, as Celtic has been the player’s preferred destination due to the Gavin Strachan link, now first-team coach at Parkhead.

But a crack at English football’s top tier would appeal to the Englishman.

We told recently how Posh manager Darren Ferguson wants the saga completed soon to avoid any distractions headed into next season.
