Scott Allan has been the subject of much transfer speculation this summer, with Celtic now leading the chase to sign the Hibernian playmaker.

Rangers have made a number of bids for Allan over the course of the transfer window, with Hibs boss Alan Stubbs adamant that he would not let the midfielder leave for Ibrox.

Now however, Allan is on the brink of an exit - but to Celtic, with Ronny Deila keen on adding the playmaker to his Parkhead squad.

The Norwegian refused to discuss the Hoops' move for Allan on Thursday - saying: "I can't comment on anything until something is done. It's too early to say something about.

Inverness CT star Ryan Christie could also be set for a move, with Premier League club Swansea City swooping for the 20-year-old forward.

And Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli is prepared to train with the club's youth team while awaiting a loyalty bonus from the Anfield club. It's all in today's transfer talk.
