Neil Lennon provides fresh Celtic transfer update as he opens up on two targets


Neil Lennon is still hopeful of bringing players in to his Celtic squad this January window – as he admitted he would like to add a full-back and a central defender.

Jeremie Frimpong yesterday moved to Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen and with Christopher Jullien out injured, the Hoops are short at the back.

Lennon was tightlipped on any player names when asked about recruitment after last night’s win against Hamilton, but he did reveal two target areas.

He told BBC Sportsound: “Look, we’ve not been immune to this pandemic financially so we felt it was good business and the timing of the deal was the right thing to do.

“Whether we have money to spend we’ll see, because there might be options that come up over the next couple of days that we don’t expect. We are looking at one or two players to bring in.

“Christopher (Jullien) is out now for a long period of time and then obviously Jeremie has gone as well. So we might look at the full-back and centre-half area.”
