FRASER FORSTER to Celtic has been the news story of the day from a Celtic perspective. Since the news filtered through this morning, we have been keeping up to date with the latest developments.
What we know now.
- Fraser is in Glasgow.
- Getting set to sign a season-long loan.
- There’s a call back option in January.
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was fielding questions today about getting rid of some of the fringe players who don’t feature in his plans.
“We have a few guys who are still on the transfer list and try to maybe find another option.” Hasenhuttl told FourFourTwo.
“You know that we have four goalkeepers at the moment, so we have the chance to give one or the other the chance to play somewhere else, and maybe Fraser is the one, yeah.”
When asked again if Fraser was on his way to Celtic he replied: “Maybe.”
With that, it’s all but confirmed. The Southampton manager obviously not wanting to come out and say it but with the pictures of Forster in Glasgow and the noise surrounding the deal it looks like this will go ahead.
Forster rejoins the club five years after departing for the St Mary’s side.
It’s certainly a good move by Neil Lennon.
