Celtic have reportedly made an enquiry to Middlesbrough over the possibility of signing Northen Ireland international Paddy McNair this summer. 

According to TEAMTalk, the Hoops, along with newly-promoted Sheffield United and Championship sides Blackburn Rovers and Derby County, are all keen on the 24-year-old.

New Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate is hoping to take a look at the player as he prepares for his first full season in management next season. 

However, Middlesbrough officials are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the versatile international and would look to receive the £3m fee they paid Sunderland for the player last year. 

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is reportedly keen on a move for his fellow countryman this summer, with the Hoops desperate for additions in defence and midfield. 

McNair can play at the back and in midfield, with the former Manchester United youngster gaining plenty of experience in recent years. A £3m move could prove to be a smart signing for next season.
