Celtic star Callum McGregor wants to leave the club and move to Leicester City, according to reports. 

The 26-year-old has played a major part in the Bhoys winning a historic domestic treble treble over the past three seasons.

However, Football Insider report that the Scotland international now wants a new challenge in the Premier League.

McGregor wants to be reunited with Brendan Rodgers at the King Power Stadium after excelling under the Northern Irishman during his two-and-a-half-year spell in charge of the Hoops.

McGregor was a key player for Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.

As Leicester have already splashed out on Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez and James Justin this summer, it’s claimed that any potential deal for the Glaswegian rests on whether the Foxes can raise extra funds by selling star defender Harry Maguire.

The England international has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Manchester City, with the former reportedly having a £70million offer turned down.

It’s thought Leicester will start the bidding at around £15million for McGregor but, with the midfielder having penned a new five-year deal in December 2018, Celtic will most likely seek a bigger fee for the man who’s played over 220 matches for them.
