Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed that Fraser Forster could make a sensational January switch to a big club in January, with Manchester United amongst the favourites, according to the Metro.

Forster has made a reputation for himself as a prodigal talent over the last year, and is now rated amongst the most gifted goalkeeping prospects in Europe.

Such has been the 25-year-old's form that he has found himself targeted by a number of high-profile outfits, with Manchester United boss David Moyes said to be extremely keen on acquiring him.

Speculation has arisen that Moyes may opt to lodge a £6million bid for Forster in January, and Neil Lennon has refused to rule out the possibility of a switch.

"It’s going to be impossible to keep Fraser, the way he’s playing," the Celtic boss said.

"Inevitably, I think a huge club will come in and make a huge bid for him.

"Sometimes it is frustrating as a manager, as you are trying to build something, trying to progress the club, but I think it is a huge compliment that big clubs want out players."

Forster has made great strides in recent months towards forcing his way into the England setup.

His impressive form, coinciding with an unfortunate series of mistakes on Joe Hart's part, have elevated the Celtic stopper to a position where he is in genuine contention for the No.1 jersey for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
