David Webb has opened the door to a potential Celtic move as their next sporting director.

The former Huddersfield head of football operations and Bournemouth recruitment chief has been tipped for a role at Parkhead amid a drastic summer overhaul.

It comes as chief executive Peter Lawwell gets set to depart the club at the end of this season to be replaced by Dominic McKay, with manager Neil Lennon already having resigned last week.

Webb, who has been out of work since leaving Huddersfield in the Championship last year, admits a position at Celtic would appeal to his ambitions. And he would be open to a move to Glasgow to undertake an exciting rebuild project should the opportunity present itself.

Asked if the Hoops role would appeal, Webb told Herald and Times Sport: "I think so. Given their historical success and how they want to build from their academy and build a long-term strategy for the club and still maintain success by winning leagues and cups, and Europe, that would definitely appeal to me.

"You could have someone like myself whose skillset could affect a number of positive areas like recruitment, vision. It's something that is appealing."

Webb's knowledge of Scottish football also extends to beyond just Celtic and their rivals Rangers as the big two. Having worked win the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur among others, he and his recruitment staff were often tasked with watching the promising youngsters produced north of the border.

"At Tottenham when I was head of elite I came to Scotland quite a lot," he explained. "There were special younger talented players, Billy Gilmour at Rangers was one. Before that there were guys like Andy Robertson, Ryan Fraser and John McGinn. Even Ryan Gauld at the time when he was at Dundee United.

"There is talent there to be developed and it's not just from the big two. Scotland is a country where home grown talent can be developed and there are lots of areas where there is serious talent."
