Adam Matthews has reached an agreement in principle to sign for former Celtic manager Neil Lennon at Omonia Nicosia [Omonia]. 

The 30 year old will be reunited with his old gaffer in Cyprus as he is set to sign a two year contract after making 31 appearances for Charlton Athletic last season.

Matthews had a successful time during his four years in Glasgow winning four league championships as well as one Scottish and League Cup. He also featured in the last 16 of the Champions League for the Hoops against Juventus in 2013.

The Welsh international headed south to Sunderland with the Hoops receiving a profitable £2 million fee for the defender.

With moves following to Bristol City and Charlton Athletic the full-back will look to test himself in the continent under a manager that knows all about his credentials.

Omonia will have the chance of qualifying for the Europa League group stages in the coming season as they are headed to the play-off round of the competition where they could possibly come up against Hearts.

If they fail to make the competition, they will enter the Conference League group stages with a guarantee of European football.

It was a successful end of the season for Omonia under Lennon as they won the Cypriot Cup for the first time in ten years which has given them a crack at Europe after they defeated Ethnikos Achna on penalties.

It will be interesting to see how Matthews gets on with his former boss and whether Omonia can make any impact in Europe.
