Celtic are set to make another bid for Newcastle keeper Fraser Forster, with the Scottish side hoping to bring the starlet to the club on a permanent basis, according to the Daily Express.
Forster has shone in Scotland over the last season, and though Alan Pardew insisted the keeper would move back to St James’ Park, Neil Lennon has long admitted to being hopeful of thrashing out a deal for Forster.
Newcastle have a range of keepers to choose from next season, and Forster hasn’t featured for the Toon since 2008. The Englishman has had loan spells at Stockport, Bristol, Norwich and finally last season at Celtic.
Reports have speculated that Celtic have already had two bids turned down by Newcastle for Forster, and The Bhoys are now set to make a final offer of £2 million in the hopes of finally landing their prize.
Forster won a runner-up medal with Celtic in the League Cup and Scottish Premier League. Lennon will no doubt be hoping that the keeper decides the possibility of challenging for trophies in Scotland is more appealing than playing for Newcastle behind Tim Krul and Steve Harper.
