Spurs interest in Celtic star confirmed

Tottenham are monitoring the progress of Celtic winger James Forrest, Harry Redknapp has confirmed.

The Scotland international continues to impress with a string of cultured displays in the SPL, while he also has six goals to his name this term.

Redknapp sent Spurs scout Ian Broomfield to compile a report on Forrest at the weekend as Celtic drew 0-0 with Hibernian and Parkhead.

Broomfield is said to have returned to White Hart Lane impressed with Forrest but it remains to be seen whether or not Spurs will formalise their interest in the 20-year-old.

"We have had good reports of what is obviously a good player," Redknapp told BBC Scotland.

"But he belongs to Celtic and that's as far as it's gone."

Redknapp was certainly unwilling to declare serious interest in Forrest, but simply claimed he would directly contact Celtic boss Neil Lennon if Spurs wanted to make an official bid.

"It is just about having reports on people, you put them on the file and you keep looking," added the Spurs boss.

"We haven't gone any further. If we were to go any further, I would phone Neil and have a chat with him about the boy."
