England are plotting a move to snatch Celtic wonderkid Karamoko Dembele from Scotland’s clutches.

The 13-year-old created international headlines when he came off the bench to play the last nine minutes for Celtic’s Under-20 side against Hearts on Monday.

The Parkhead club face a battle to compete with enticements to the player’s family from Europe’s elite, while the Scottish Football Association are also fighting to stop their English counterparts from poaching Dembele away.
