Biggest Incoming Scottish Premiership Summer Transfers, According To AI

Some household names from the Premier League over the past five years are set to up sticks and head to Scotland, with multiple England internationals and proven players at Championship and Premier League level set to join Scottish Premiership teams, according to AI.

Rangers Secure Services Of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Dele Alli

Rangers are expected to be particularly active in the summer transfer window to try and close the gap on bitter rivals Celtic and once again challenge for the league. One of their standout summer signings will be securing Dele Alli’s services from Everton following the expiry of his contract. The former England international is keen on a move to Rangers to reignite his career, seeing the Gers are the perfect launchpad for him to help them win the league again and also get his own career back on the right path following a few years of turmoil.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also set to sign for Rangers this summer in what is another high-profile signing from the Glasgow side. The player is eager to join the club and brings his experience and versatility to the Scottish Premiership. This signing will be a significant boost for Rangers as they look to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. It is expected that the former Arsenal and Liverpool star will cost Rangers around £3.75million.

Josh Maja is expected to cost Rangers around £3million as he is set to move north to Scotland in a shock deal from Crystal Palace. Another unlikely signing from the Gers is that of Ollie Norwood from Sheffield United. The versatile midfielder was a sought after name following the expiry of his contract at the Blades, opting for a move to Rangers to bolster their midfield and help Philippe Clement’s side challenge for the Scottish Premiership title once again.

Celtic Make Use Of Free Transfers With Adam Lallana & Brandon Williams Heading To Parkhead

The first of Celtic’s summer signings is expected to be highly-rated young winger Nathan Ferguson from Crystal Palace, who would add pace and creativity to their attacking options as well as versatility as a wing-back. The 23-year-old is expected to cost Celtic around £2.5million. This fee reflects his potential and current market value, making him an affordable yet impactful addition to their squad for the upcoming season.

Two of Celtic’s most notable summer signings will arrive as free transfers following the expiry of their contracts at their former clubs. The first of these standout signings is that of former England midfielder Adam Lallana. The experienced Premier League player is set to leave Brighton and has opted for a move to Celtic Park, turning down several Championship clubs in the process. Manchester United’s Brandon Williams is also set to sign on the dotted line for Celtic, despite interest from the likes of Ipswich Town and Leeds United.

Rotherham United star centre-back Cameron Humphries is also set for a move to Scotland, with Celtic securing his signature for a fee of £2.25million. Although this fee seems high for a central defender who got relegated last season with the Millers, Humphries was highly sought after by several top-end Championship clubs, but instead opted for a move to the Scottish giants.

Hendrick Heads To Aberdeen, Roberts Signs For Hearts

Some other notable transfers not including Celtic or Rangers are also set to take place in the summer transfer window. Upon the expiry of his contract at Newcastle united, Irish midfielder Jeff Hendrick is set to move even further north as he heads to Aberdeen on a free transfer. Similarly, Leeds United winger Ian Poveda didn’t take long to find a club following the expiry of his contract at Elland Road, signing for Hibernian to bolster their squad and help Hibs become more of a threat in attack.

Northern Ireland international Shayne Lavery is yet another player who has opted for a move to Scotland, despite interest from several Championship and League One clubs. The forward is set to make a move to Kilmarnock following the expiry of his contract at Blackpool.

Despite only signing for Birmingham City last summer, Tyler Roberts’ time in the Midlands is set to come to an end as the Blues received a shock £1.5million bid from Hearts to secure the signature of the Wales international. The versatile attacker, who has over 100 appearances for Leeds United including in the Premier League, is looking to reignite his career and sees this move to Hearts as a step in the right direction for his career.

Biggest Outgoing Scottish Premiership Summer Transfers, According To AI

Some of the biggest transfer news in the Scottish Premiership this summer unsurprisingly involves Celtic and Rangers more than any other club. The two dominant Scottish clubs will both be extremely active this summer transfer window, bringing in several additions to strengthen their respective squads as well as letting some big names and long-term servants of the club go.

Celtic Cash-In On Kyogo & O’Riley For Combined £37.5 Million

Reigning Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are set to cash in on two of their prized assets this summer, with both Matt O’Riley and Kyogo leaving Parkhead in favour of a move to the Premier League. Brighton fought off interest from several other Premier League and Japanese clubs to secure the services of Kyogo in a move of £21.5million. The prolific striker had plenty of options on the table, but in the end opted for a move to Brighton where he sees a Champions League push on the cards next season.

Brentford secured the signing of the highly-rated O’Riley, costing the Bees around £16million. This figure could rise to as much as £20 if the 23-year-old is sold-on for a higher fee in the future or if he plays in Europe for the London club.

Sead Haksabanovic is another name leaving Celtic, signing for newly promoted Serie A team Parma for a fee of around £2.75million. These exits from Parkhead were expected following Brendan Rodgers’ astute signings of Adam Lallana, Cameron Humphries, Brandon Wiliams and Nathan Ferguson.

Rangers Let Tavernier, Goldson & Lawrence Move On

Rangers boss Philippe Clement reluctantly let a few of his stalwarts go elsewhere, with captain James Tavernier teaming up with former Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst at Besiktas. Tavernier’s fee is said to be around £8million, which is more than the Glasgow side expected to get for the 32-year-old. Another big move involving a defender was that of Connor Goldson, who has joined former Rangers boss Steven Gerrard in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ettifaq. The Saudi Arabian club are reportedly set to pay the Ibrox club £5million for his signature.

There are further Premier League moves involving players from the Scottish Premiership as Rangers’ Tom Lawrence is set to join Kieran McKenna at newly promoted Ipswich Town in a deal said to be worth around £4million. Partick Thistle star teenager Cieran Loney is another player heading to the Premier League from Scotland, signing for Sean Dyche’s Everton for an undisclosed fee.

Shankland Leaves Hearts, Sidibeh, Bair & Barron Opt For Championship Moves

Elsewhere in the Scottish Premiership, Hearts prolific striker Lawrence Shankland had received huge amounts of interest from various clubs in England as well as from Rangers, opting for a move to Turf Moor in the end. The Scotland international put pen to paper late in the window after the Euros, signing for Burnley for a fee of around £3million.

Along with Shankland, several other players from various Scottish Premiership clubs have also made their way to the Championship in England. Highly touted Motherwell striker Theo Bair is expected to join Sunderland for a fee of around £1.5million, whilst Adam Sidibeh signs for Swansea for half-a-million-pounds from St Johnstone and Connor Barron joins Norwich City from Aberdeen on a free transfer.

Another name leaving Scotland and opting for a new club in England is Kilmarnock’s star midfielder Liam Polworth. The 29-year-old is set to sign for League One side Bolton Wanderers, as they aim to secure automatic promotion back to the Championship this season following heartache in the Play-Off Final back in May. This concludes some of the highest profile outgoing transfers from the Scottish Premiership this summer.


Liam Solomon, Head of Sports PR at InstantCasinos, commented on the AI predicted Scottish Premiership summer transfers saying: “If AI had got it right and some of these predicted Scottish Premiership transfers actually happen, we are in for a quite manic summer transfer window.

“A transfer window that potentially sees the likes of Celtic star players Kyogo and Matt O’Riley leave Parkhead is sure to be a big one. Not to mention the likes of James Tavernier, Lawrence Shankland, Tom Lawrence & Connor Goldson all leaving the Scottish Premiership in favour of moves across Europe and to Premier League sides.

“It’s evident that Rangers know they need to bring top class players in if they are to close the gap on Celtic and snatch the title from their grasp. The signings of former Premier League and England international stars like Dele Alli and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are signings of intent from Philippe Clement and his aim of bringing glory back to Ibrox.

“Strap in for what could be a truly relentless summer transfer window in Scotland if any of these moves actually come to fruition.”
