Celtic snap up Reds striker

According to reports on Sky Sports this morning, Celtic have snapped up Middlesbrough striker Ben Hutchinson on a pre-contract agreement.

Hutchinson has made eight substitute appearances for the Premier League side and scored on his debut against Manchetser City earlier in the season. Many sides were said to be interested in the 20-year old who joined Boro from non-league side Arnold Town last summer.

Boro boss Gareth Southagte is said to be deeply frustrated at losing the striker but Boro will receive some sort of compensation.
