Nottingham Forest attacker Garath McCleary is a reported transfer target for West Bromwich Albion and Celtic.

West Bromwich Albion and Celtic are reportedly battling to sign Nottingham Forest winger Garath McCleary.

The 24-year-old will be out of contract with Forest this summer and has yet to agree a new deal at the City Ground.

That news has alerted West Brom, who are believed to have been tracking the attacker for a number of months.

However, they will face competition from Scottish champions Celtic for McCleary's services, according to Sky Sports News.

A number of Championship sides are also said to be keen on adding McCleary to their squads over the coming weeks.
