Celtic are have emerged a contenders in the race to sign wantaway Tottenham midfielder Niko Kranjcar.

According to talkSPORT, the Glasgow club are ready to reignite their interest in the 26-year-old, having previously missed out on his signature during the winter transfer window.

Celtic had attempted to sign Kranjcar on loan during January, but his protracted move to Parkhead fell through at the last minute, which has led Neil Lennon to return for the Croatia international.

However, Celtic's pursuit of Kranjcar may hit a stumbling block with their preference of securing a season-long loan likely to be less appealing for Spurs than a cash offer from the likes of Dynamo Kiev or Wolfsburg.

Spurs will reportedly hold out for £6 million before Kranjcar can leave White Hart Lane, which could price Celtic out of any potential move.


The emergence of Gareth Bale last season saw Kranjcar make just 13 appearances in the Barclays Premier League and, although Harry Redknapp is keen to keep him, the former Portsmouth man wants to revitalise his career elsewhere.

Kranjcar moved to north London from Fratton Park in 2009 for £2 million and has played 56 times for Spurs, scoring 10 goals.
