Celtic front runners in race to land Ipswich's Dylan Crowe

Celtic front runners in race to land Ipswich's Dylan Crowe Celtic are reportedly beating the likes of Huddersfield Town and RB Leipzig in the race to sign Ipswich Town right-back Dylan Crowe, according to the Daily Mail, cited by Football Scotland. The report claims that all three clubs are still interested in the teenager, however, Celtic are now in pole position to secure Crowe’s services over the summer. Neil Lennon looks set to lose Cristian Gamboa this summer and could possibly be without the long-serving Mikael Lustig next season. And the lure of potential first-team football is thought to be why the Hoops are now the favourites to sign the 18-year-old.

Norwich City centre-back Timm Klose has taken aim at Ipswich Town this week, claiming that they have “no fans”.

Klose says that Norwich are the dominant club in East Anglia and are bigger than their rivals Ipswich.

The Swiss centre-back is a popular figure at Carrow Road, for his personality off the pitch as well as his performances on it.

Since joining from Wolfsburg in 2016, Klose has played 110 league matches for Norwich – scoring 10 goals for the club, including a stoppage time equaliser against Ipswich in a 1-1 draw back in 2018.

Celtic interested in Ipswich right-back Dylan Crowe Celtic have joined the race for highly-rated Ipswich Town right-back Dylan Crowe. According to the Daily Mail, cited by This Is Futbol, the Hoops are monitoring the teenager, who is out of contract at Portman Road this summer. Recently relegated Huddersfield Town and German outfit RB Leipzig are also thought to be keen on the player who looks set to leave Ipswich this summer. The report claims that the Tractor Boys recently rejected a £300,000 bid from the Terriers for the 18-year-old, with the club holding out for a £500,000 compensation fee.

Speaking to  Aargauer Zeitung, as quoted by The Pink’Un, Klose said this:

“Norwich is the club in eastern England. We have a big fan base. Besides us, there is Ipswich, but they are not so cool and have no fans.”

“That’s what I’m saying now, because it’s the derby. But Norwich is already the biggest club in the east.”

Klose was due to be out of contract this summer but recently put pen to paper on a new deal at Norwich, tying him down until the summer of 2022.
