Celtic striker Patryk Klimala is closing in on a move to New York Red Bulls, according to reports.

The Scottish Sun say the Polish frontman will depart Parkhead this summer after just 14 months at Parkhead.

During that time Klimala has made 28 appearances, scoring three goals. The 22-year-old's playing time has been limited with Odsonne Edouard the first choice.

The Red Bulls get their MLS campaign underway on Sunday when they welcome Sporting Kansas City to the Red Bull Arena.

Meanwhile, Stephen Welsh spoke of the “perfect scenario” after signing a new four-year contract that will see him remain at Celtic until at least the summer of 2025.

The 21-year-old defender is a product of the Parkhead club’s youth academy and has been at Celtic for over a decade.

Welsh made his first-team debut last season in a 4-1 Premiership win at Hamilton in February 2020 but has established himself as a regular in recent months and has made 16 appearances so far this season as he looks forward to the Scottish Cup fourth-round clash with Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday.

“I’m delighted to get it done and I’m here for another four years which is the perfect scenario for me,” he told Celtic TV.

“This season has of course been disappointing for the team and for the club, but I’ve been getting a consistent run of regular games since the Christmas period there.

“For me, it’s just about keeping that up, keep doing it, keep playing well, hopefully until the end of the season.

“I’ve not played a lot of games, I think it’s maybe when you’ve played 50 or 100 games like the other boys that have come through the academy have done, that’s when you start to prove yourself.

“It’s about making that form consistent, doing well, working hard at training, and getting your chance.

“That’s what it’s about, and being a bit lucky as well. Hopefully that all comes together.”
