Here are the latest headlines, news and transfer speculation surrounding the SPFL:

Belgian club Oostende are keen to retain Celtic defender Osaze Urhoghide’s services. The 21-year-old spent the end of the season with the Belgian first division club and played six times. The centre-back has another three seasons under contract at Celtic. Oostende boss Gauthier Ganaye said: “Urhoghide has proven to be an excellent addition but the problem is that he’s still too expensive for us. But I hope we can work out a solution with Celtic, then I would be very happy because we really want to keep Osaze.” (Scottish sun)

Defender ‘done’ at Celtic

Former Celtic favorite Frank McAvennie believes the Scottish champions will look to sign Christopher Jullien in the summer. The France centre-back returned from a long-term injury but McAvennie doesn’t think he’ll be rated by Ange Postecoglou. He said: “There were so many games to play last season and he never looked in, that tells me he’s pretty much done at Celtic. I assume he will leave this summer because Ange will not keep anyone who does not contribute.” (Scottish sun)
