Celtic may have been given a last-gasp opportunity to sign promising Irish youngster Gavin Bazunu.

According to the Irish Mirror, Shamrock Rovers have denied claims that the goalkeeper has agreed to join Manchester City.

Celtic have been linked with a move for theĀ 16-year-old and reportedly offered him a trial in a bid to seal his signature.

Pictures and reports emerged on Wednesday that seemed to suggest City had won the race to sign the 16-year-old, beating the likes of Brighton, Celtic and Liverpool to his signature.

The Premier League champions were also believed to have paid a sizeable fee for the 16-year-old, who has impressed after breaking through in Ireland.

With the player likely to remain in Ireland this season, the deal could still go through in the near future.

Chelsea and Tottenham were also linked with the goalkeeper, but it is yet to be seen if any club will look to steal the march on City late on.
