Neil Lennon has told the Celtic support he would love to keep both Fraser Forster and Mohamed Elyounoussi at the club next term.
Both will be heading back to Southampton now the league is officially over but there’s been no word from Celtic yet if they plan to make either deal permanent.
Even though Neil says he would love to keep the pair, there was nothing definite about his statement.
“We’re hopeful they’ll be around but that’s a conversation we’ll have to have with Southampton and the players individually.” Neil told SunSport.
“In the main, we’d want to keep them if we could. It kept that continuity going rather than maybe going out and bringing other players in.
“If we could keep the services of those two, they know how we work and what the club is all about.
“They made really good contributions. Fraser was absolutely brilliant and Moey, up until the injury, was fantastic.”
Celtic fans are desperate to see the club hold on to Fraser Forster. The big man has been sensational since his return to the club.
Moi is a different kettle of fish and has intimated in the past he wants another go at the premier league.
If we could land Fraser in a permanent deal, I think Celtic fans wouldn’t be too fussed about Moi not coming back.
The midfielder was great before his injury but he would cost a lot of money to bring in full time. Hopefully, Celtic are now making plans with next season in mind and Fraser is at the top of the list.
