Forster poised for Hoops switch

Published Add your comment

Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster is poised to complete a loan switch to Celtic subject to a medical on Monday after watching the Parkhead club's 4-0 victory over St Mirren.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon sounded out his Norwich counterpart Paul Lambert, where Forster has previously been on loan, before deciding on a signing that will place pressure on current first choice Lukasz Zaluska.

Lennon said: "He's a big boy, he's come highly recommended, I've watched him myself a couple of times. His age, 22, is the only thing going against him because otherwise he's all the qualities you look for in a goalkeeper."

He added: "He's got a massive presence and he's come highly recommended from people in the game whose opinion I trust, so if the medical goes okay, we'll take him on board.

"We've needed competition in that area so he'll add to that."
