James McFadden has emerged as a possible transfer target for Neil Lennon’s Celtic.

The Birmingham striker has only a year left on his contract, and Celtic boss Lennon see’s it as an ideal opportunity to bring the former Motherwell man back to his hometown.

With McFadden looking unlikely to sign a contract extension at St Andrews, Blues boss Alex McLeish could be forced into negotiating before the close of the transfer window.

City have an abundance of striking options at the club with Kevin Phillips, Cameron Jerome, Gary O’Connor and new signing Nikola Zigic. The possible signing of AZ Alkmaar forward Moussa Dembele would add more depth to their attacking options ahead of the season opener next weekend..

With the transfer merry-go-round in full swing, any possible deal relies on Aiden McGeady’s transfer to Aston Villa going through, which in turn hinges on James Milner’s transfer to Manchester City. The involvement of CSKA Moscow in a potential move for McGeady makes the plot thicken further.

In the meantime, Juan Roman Riquelme’s possible move to City looks to have hit a dead end, with City cheifs baulking at the Argentinian playmaker’s wage demands.
