Celtic have surprisingly reignited their interest in Sheffield United right-back George Baldock, according to Football Insider

The report suggests that the Hoops are back in for the 26-year-old, with Neil Lennon hoping to sign at least two new right-backs over the coming weeks.

Baldock was the subject of a £3 million bid from Celtic last month, however, the Blades decided to turn the offer down in hope of tieing the player down to a new deal. 

Unfortuanlty for boss Chris Wilder, Baldock has yet to sign a new contract at Bramall Lane, which could see the Blades cash in on the full-back before the window closes. 

Baldock has just 12 months left on his current Sheffield United deal, so if the player wants to leave, the Hoops may not have to add too much to their initial £3 million offer. 

Lennon is hoping to land Baldock to fill the void left by Mikael Lustig, with Huddersfield Town right-back Tommy Smith also thought to be of interest to the Northen Irishman.
