Southgate Won't Challenge Celtic!

Southgate does not want to get involved in an auction for the 24-year-old, who has attracted interest from a host of British clubs.

Spanish sources claim that Boro were prepared to pay £1.7m for the player, who spent last season on loan at Swansea City.

But it appears that Espanyol have taken the opportunity to up the asking price as a result of interest from Celtic, Newcastle United and West Brom.
