Scottish clubs tend to find themselves at a huge disadvantage to their English counterparts when it comes to finance, but there is a small loophole that can help them in the market.
They can approach players with an offer of a pre-contract deal when they enter the last six months of the deal, while the English parties have to wait until the last weeks of the contract to offer the terms.
That can also work against them if the selling club just decides to cash in on a nominal offer to make sure they don’t go free, but it could be the key to Celtic beating Spurs and the signing of Scottish U19 forward Kyle. Joseph.

Has been reported by objective that both sides are following the Wigan forward while Sheffield United and Rangers are also mentioned, so it is clear that he will have plenty of offers if he leaves.
This is Joseph’s breakthrough season and his four-goal tally in eleven games was boosted by a hat trick in a recent outing, but he is a talented player who could have the potential to advance to a higher level.
You always fear that a player like him might just disappear into the U23 system and never hear from him again, so hopefully he will find a club that offers a clear path to the first team rather than repeatedly sending him on loan.
