Celtic are a club who most often see their best players leave. That is just the reality of the situation of life as a supporter of the Hoops and one that has been accepted by the fans a long time ago. Last summer, Jota departed in a £25 million transfer move and was never really replaced. And there are a few potential candidates to leave after this season as well.

Celtic do not have a lot of players who have improved this season. Matt O'Riley is someone who has and appears to enjoy playing in Brendan Rodgers' system more than he did under the management of Ange Postecoglou.

O'Riley has been heavily linked with a move away from Celtic Park for a while now. In January, Atletico Madrid even made a failed offer to sign him.

While an exit might not have materialised in the middle of the season, it feels somewhat inevitable in the summer. Clubs like Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are believed to be keeping an eye on him. But so are many from England.

Leeds United are another club who are believed to have tried to sign O'Riley in the past. And the English club could try their luck again.

As reported by GIVEMESPORT, Leeds United may be tempted to make an offer for O'Riley. That is if they achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Leeds United are nowhere near the size of Atletico Madrid or Inter Milan. But O'Riley has shown in the past that he is very smart when it comes to picking his destinations. He had turned down a chance to remain at Fulham in order to join MK Dons in League One. Not many would have done that and it is safe to say that it has paid off in the long run.
