Report: Celtic and Rangers joined by Sheffield United in race for Tyrese Campbell

Rangers and Celtic reportedly have new competition in the race for Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell.

According to the Daily Record, both Old Firm clubs have made offers for the 20-year-old and they could nap him up for less than £400,000 in the summer on a cross-border compensation deal.

The report details that Premier League outfit Sheffield United have now joined the battle for his signature and will try offer him a move to the English top-flight.

It is explained that the England Under-20 international has also been offered a deal to stay at Stoke and a decision will be made on his future this week.


Campbell’s current deal expires with Stoke at the end of the season and that’s why for now his future remains fairly unclear.

The centre-forward scored on Monday night in a 1-0 win over Championship leaders West Brom, but was substituted off with a hamstring problem.

TBR’s View:

Campbell looks like he will be on the sidelines in the near future with a fresh injury problem, but he looks a serious talent and would be a great addition to the Scottish league if either Old Firm club can win the race for him.

The quick striker now has five goals in his last five Championship games and has started to make a serious breakthrough into the Stoke first-team.

He would be a bargain addition for both Scottish giants next summer, but the fear is Sheffield United swooping in this month.
