The race to become Scottish champions next year is already very much underway.

While Rangers have aspirations of kicking on next term and providing viable competition, the target at Parkhead is much more ambitious.

Coming away as Champions next term will mean that Celtic have made in 10 titles in a row - something that their rivals will certainly find difficult to stomach.

However if the Bhoys are to do that then they'll need to make sure that they make a success of the summer's transfer market.

Based on the latest reports, it seems that one move could be gathering pace.

That's the move for Fraser Forster.

Reports have suggested that Forster is expected to rejoin Celtic on another loan deal for the duration of the new campaign.

All parties are said to be keen on striking a deal which could involve an option for a permanent deal at the end of next season.

Striking a deal so early would be a massive boost for Neil Lennon who is prioritising a move for Fraser Forster a priority for the club.

While a move is yet to be agreed, Celtic favourite James Forrest has gone on the record with his hopes that the Southampton star will return again this term.

As quoted by The Daily Record, Forrest said: “Everyone is hoping Fraser comes back.

"I played with Fraser before and then last season he came back and did tremendous.

“We just need to wait and see over the next couple of weeks to see what he decides but we all want him back.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

A permanent move for Fraser Forster is a no-brainer for me.

After spending the best part of five years at Celtic Park the 32-year-old knows exactly what it takes to be a success with the club, and the fans know that.

While he may be in the autumn of his career, Forster is likely to still have a few good years left in him and that means that Celtic could reap the benefits of his experience for several seasons to come.

It will be a big ask to compete with the finances on offer in the Premier League, but given his affinity for the club it could prove to be a shrewd move to sign him up.
