Celtic transfer news latest as goalkeeper 'target' becomes available and Idah and Bernardo talks continue

While across the city Rangers are making signing after signing, Celtic are yet to complete their first.

That of course isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially as it comes from the Hoops having far less to do in the market than their rivals after dominating them for yet another season. But supporters have criticised their club for a lack of activity over a number of windows now and so may start to get impatient.

Assistant boss John Kennedy insists it's not for the want of trying, explaining: "I think the club are working hard on that. Some targets have been identified and we've been working on that in the background. It's a key position for us, we know it's a position we need to get in. We want to do that as soon as we can so hopefully in the coming weeks we can have some news on that.

"There are obviously some challenges in terms of the negotiations that will take place. But ultimately, we know it's a key position for us. We want to get the key positions in as quickly as we can so we get to work with them and the manager and the board are working hard on that."

Brendan Rodgers is keen to secure the returns of loan players Adam Idah and Paulo Bernardo, and Kennedy added: He said: "I think there's a lot of conversations happening. It's a time when a lot of players have been on holiday and different things have been happening.

"A lot of conversations have been taking place. We come back for pre-season and hopefully in the coming weeks a few things will start to happen but there's a lot of plates spinning and a lot of work getting done. Hopefully we'll start to see that materialise over the coming weeks."

Goalkeeper is the most pressing concern and there were strong rumours about Croatia number one Dominik Livaković but those were quashed in his homeland after some outstanding displays at the Euros. Peter Vindahl Jensen of Sparta Prague is the top target after we exclusively revealed their interest.

But another name in the mix is Asmir Begovic. And that path appears to have just opened up with the 36-year-old moving on from QPR. He was said to be locked in talks but after being told by manager Marti Cifuentes he would not be first choice, opted to move on, according to West London Sport.

A previous striking target who could still be on the radar is Mathias Kvistgaarden. And he's admitted he would like to leave Brondby. He said: "There is no doubt about that. I think I have shown myself in a lot of ways, which means that I have shown that I can hopefully also play internationally at some point."
