Sunderland AFC transfer gossip: Charlie Wyke set to reject Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest and Millwall offers to join Celtic - reports
Charlie Wyke is set to reject Championship interest to join Celtic – according to reports.
Wyke, who scored 31 goals last season, is out of contract at the Stadium of Light this summer.
The target man was offered fresh terms on Wearside alongside Aiden McGeady, Luke O’Nien and Denver Hume.
Middlesbrough and Russian side CSKA Moscow have been credited with an interest in the Teesside-born forward.
Reports today, however, suggest that the 28-year-old is set to reject interest from the Championship.
Second-tier clubs Cardiff City Nottingham Forest and Millwall have also apparently held talks this summer.
The Northern Echo state that Wyke is closing in on a move to Scottish giants Celtic, who have just confirmed Ange Postecoglou as their new manager.
The report also claims Celtic have already held talks with Wyke and his representatives.
But the Hoops are now said to be ready to make a firm offer for Wyke which would see Sunderland’s top scorer depart for nothing.
