Despite only moving to the club in 2010, Gary Hooper may already be on his way out of Celtic Park with Aston Villa, Sunderland and Fulham all showing interest in his signature.

The striker has been in inspiring form for the Hoops, scoring 37 goals in 64 appearances under Neil Lennon’s management, leading some of the Premier League to prick up their ears, especially when hearing of his £6.5m price-tag.

Some have said that the forward is enjoying his time at Celtic, and while it’s well and good to say that he is getting European football at his current club, the Premier League interest could clearly be a step up in the long run.

Gary Hooper has been a remarkable success since his move from Scunthorpe United to Celtic, form that has led to speculation of a Scottish international call-up, and now it seems increasing interest from Premier League sides keen to bring the 23 year old goal machine south of the border.

Clearly Aston Villa and Sunderland boss’s Alex McLeish and Martin O’Neill have their SPL links and may well have been scouting the talented speedy Celtic striker and Martin Jol may well lose Fulham pair Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson, both said to be unhappy at the West London club.

Hooper has scored 37 goals in 61 starts for Celtic and has been pivotal in Neil Lennon’s side resurgent run to the top of the table and the Bhoys boss will not want to lose the Essex born striker this month and indeed the prolific marksman may look to stay at the Glasgow club to help them challenge for the title before a possible summer move.
