Celtic fans have been given another piece of news as their season goes from strength to strength after John Kennedy backed the board to “produce something” with regards to making the loan signing of Fraser Forster permanent according to The Sunday Post.
The Southampton stopper has been in exceptional form throughout the season and has made a string of key performances on the biggest stage in the Europa League and the league cup final with opposition forwards now no better than 60/40 when facing “The Great Wall” at a penalty kick.
Kennedy said in preparation for the second leg of their Europa League tie against Copenhagen after the Englishman had made a crucial spot-kick save in the first leg to keep the scores level:
“If there is a deal to be done, the club can produce something and a deal between Southampton and Fraser is possible, then I’m pretty sure we would try to do it.”
“If Fraser became available we would want him. He has been terrific and made big saves at the big moments.”
Forster left the Hoops in 2014 for £10m and although the Saints would be unlikely to expect to get their money back, his form and potential England recall could see his fee rise significantly higher than it would have been last summer.
Should Celtic break the bank for Forster?
With Neil Lennon having a settled side, he only needs to fine tune his squad and the permanent signing of Forster would go a long way to ensuring another season where clean sheets are as common as corner kicks.
