Celtic wrapped up a deal for Poland under 21 international Patryk Klimala in Tuesday and now have FOUR strikers on their books.

With only one position to fight for in Neil Lennon’s current system there’s no need for more strikers to come through the sport.

However, there’s a chance Vakoun Bayo or Leigh Griffiths could seek loan moves in the coming weeks to help get them game time and play their way back into the Celtic team for next season.

If one or two of the Celtic strikers went out on loan it could open the door for Celtic to bring in some experience up front for six months.

Former Aston Villa striker Darren Bent believes if that scenario is on the table – Celtic and Billy Sharp would be a match made in heaven.

“Yeah I mean listen, he’s had a great career playing in the lower leagues, scoring a lot of goals.” Bent told football insider as cited by SunSport.

“I think maybe the Premier League has been a step too far for him, he hasn’t looked nowhere near being the lethal striker in the Premier League, that we know he has been in League One.

“But yeah for him to go and play for a big club like Celtic, go and win trophies up there, get in the Champions League, I’m all for that.

“A lot of people think the Scottish league isn’t great, and competitive wise maybe it isn’t great but to go play in the Championship League with Celtic and win trophies, I’m all for it.

“I think it’s a move he should seriously consider.”

Neil Lennon has been keen to stress he wants to add some older heads this window. Klimala wouldn’t come into that category. With half of the January winds left to go – there could be a few more faces in the door before the end of the month. Billy is 33, and is currently on the books at high flying Sheffield Utd in the Premier League.

It’s all about availability and affordability. According to Transfermarkt, the striker is worth £1.8m. There’d likely be a minimal fee to get the player on loan.
