How is it ridiculous when he was our player of the season for one season and was brilliant in the our first season in the top flight? Potter doesn't think he fits and he's had a bad season but he'd do a job for a few pl teams. Craig Dawson is doing the job for West Ham and he's never been as good as Duffy and they're just off a champions League spot

Have you seen Duffy playing for Celtic? For whatever reason, he has suffered as bad a loss of form as any top player I can think of, and there is no guarantee he'll get it back.

He's a calamity and liability for Celtic, whether that's because he has personal issues, we don't know, but there is no way in his current form that he would get anywhere near a, Premier league team, unfortunately.

I'm not saying it's guaranteed, just that it's not ridiculous for him to play premier League football again

But is anyone prepared to buy him? After his season at Celtic there’s not going to be many teams stumping up cash for him. Perhaps loaning him out so that someone else covers his wages is the best we can hope for.

After the season he's had, finding anyone to pay all of his wages would be highly unlikely. I can't see Wayne Rooney's Derby doing it.

Would have been better at Rangers.

I’ve not seen Rangers play that much but Duffy needs to play in a team where he is not expected to steam forward and play football.

I remember when we played Cardiff at home once, Warnock man marked our back line distributer, Dunk. The ball was going to Duffy to move forward but he was really ineffective. Great tactics and surprisingly effective. But as a shot blocker and man-2-man defender, there are few better in the Premier League. Perfect for a team like Burnley or Palace.

Derby are interested in him if you believe the gossip section of the BBC Sport pages.

If Wayne Rooney manages to keep Derby County in the Championship he will look to sign Brighton and Republic of Ireland centre-back Shane Duffy, 29, who has spent the season on loan at Celtic. (Football Insider)

He has lost a lot of transfer value this season, a good loan in the championship would get a better transfer fee next summer. Wages paid and a loan fee would help also. He's still contracted until 2023.

You think a Championship club will pay a loan fee and pay his £45k a week wages?
