Parkhead boss looks to fight off interest in young talent.
Aston Villa and Sunderland are both thought to be monitoring Celtic teenager Lewis Kidd with a view to a potential move for the teenager according to the Daily Star.
Though 18 year old Kidd is yet to play a senior match for Celtic his displays for the youth team have impressed many and Parkhead boss Neil Lennon will look to prevent the teenager leaving when his current contract comes to an end this summer.
The midfielder, who can also be used at right-back, has been a great success in the Hoops’ Youth Champions League campaign.
Lennon saw Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper both leave for the Premier League with Southampton and Norwich City respectively and hopes to avoid the loss of a player considered a hot prospect.
As well as interest from the Premier League pair Ajax are also keeping tabs on Kidd who Celtic hope to tie down to a long term deal.
