Patryk Klimala is wanted by NY Red Bulls on a permanent transfer.

The Polish striker has struggled to settle at Celtic with game time limited since his signing from Jagiellonia Białystok for around £3.5million last year.

A return of just three goals in 28 appearances for the Hoops has not been good enough and he has not hit the net since October. But Red Bulls are looking for a new pacey hitman and Klimala fits the bill.

It has been reported that the MLS outfit wanted to do a loan deal but Herald and Times Sport understands it could be a permanent switch the club are after. We believe Klimala's representatives have already opened a dialogue with both Celts and Red Bulls over a potential move.

Klimala, 22, still has three years left on his current contract at Parkhead but Red Bulls would be hoping to do a cut-price deal to take him off Celtic's hands. Their transfer window is open until June 1 due to the Covid pandemic.
