Reading, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers have expressed an interest in signing young Australian midfielder Tom Rogic, who is currently training with Scottish Premier League champions Celtic.

The 20-year-old is highly regarded in the A-League and is expected to move to Europe in the January transfer window with Spanish sides Celta Viga and Rayo Vallecano and Belgians Club Brugge also in the hunt for his signature.

Celtic were understood to be in pole position to sign the central midfielder after offering him a trial at their Spanish winter training camp, but it is QPR manager Harry Redknapp who has been the first to declare a formal interest in signing Rogic from A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

Central Coast Mariners chairman Peter Turnbull told au.fourfourtwo.com: “We can confirm that QPR have provided a formal letter and another is expected from another Premier League club.

“Glasgow Celtic appear to have been impressed with Tom during his stay in Spain, and have requested that Tom travel back to Glasgow with them to view their facilities, and see Glasgow first-hand. It is not surprising to see Tom in such demand, and from such big clubs. “We are proud to have been able to give Tom this opportunity, and are especially pleased to see the quality of the clubs that have shown interest in him and subsequently the Central Coast Mariners.”

His agent Andrew Bernal added: “He is enjoying training with Celtic at the moment but Tom has some decisions to make and it will have to be a club that is right for him.”
