Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong is permitted to speak to Southampton after the two clubs agreed terms for the player's transfer, according to a report.

A report has claimed that Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has been given permission to speak to Southampton after the two clubs agreed terms for the player's transfer.

The Scotland international signed a new two-year deal last summer despite reported interest from Saints which coincided with a dip in form and injury issues.

Armstrong, who has been at Celtic since 2015, is believed to be keen on a prospective move to the Premier League.

According to BBC Sport, Saints are ready to pay an initial fee of £7m for the 26-year-old which could rise further depending on various factors.

Armstrong started his career with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and spent four-and-a-half years with Dundee United before joining Celtic.
