    CELTIC aren’t poised to announce the free transfer capture of Steven Fletcher but he IS in Neil Lennon’s thinking.

    A well placed Hoops source tonight told SunSport no deal has been agreed for the 33-year-old who is leaving Sheffield Wednesday and would jump at the chance of moving to Parkhead.

    We’ve also been assured there AREN’T currently contract negotiations with the former Burnley, Wolves, Sunderland and Marseille hitman.

    Lennon, however, is a fan of ex-Hibernian hero Fletcher and has been well aware of the possibilities over recent weeks.

    Peterborough United’s Ivan Toney and West Ham’s Albian Ajeti remain firm targets too, with the latter viewed as an initial loan signing.

    It’s understood former Scotland star Fletcher is that keen on the prospect of playing for the nine-in-a-row champions he’d be happy to accept terms less than he could attract remaining in England, with Stoke City ready to table a two year contract offer.

    Celtic baulked at a £4 million asking price for Fletcher from Hibs in January, 2009.

    Lennon’s carefully considering all options and won’t be rushed into any moves.

    Pay as you play at a suspected decent rate, bayo is out the door. Keep edoaurd and add one of ajeti and toney. Getting SF doesn't mean we aren't getting Toney/ajeti.. nmecha also mentioned as a possible target in the McGowan article.

    I find it hard to believe that we would go from committing to spending £5-6m on a striker tonsuddnely go down to a free agent 33 year old as a 3rd option.

    I think with the 9 subs this year,, Fletcher would come in with someone else.

    No mate, Sutton said Fletcher would be a good option to bring in and that if they did play together that Fletcher would compliment the way Edouard plays. Think it was on the record Celtic podcast, he was saying that it’s absolutely paramount we keep Eddy this season, which of course goes without saying.

    Don’t know if it’s been suggested or not yet but I think we should go in for Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos. 24 year old Greek international left back who has 5 assists this year in the super league and has european experience. Transfermarkt value him at around 8 million ando seen a few articles from months ago saying Rangers would go in for him if Barisic left as well as links to Tottenham and Liverpool which have since died down. He’s the type of calibre player we should be going for over guys like Colina who, whilst doubtless promising, have not played at the elite level of european football. Moreover, not that we should sign him solely to create a Greek expat community, but having signed his international team mate in Barkas, he might feel slightly more open to a move.

    With Ajeti * about,
    B
    fry dicking about,

    no CB's being mentioned,

    Now being linked with Hun * like McNair, geriatrics like Fletcher, and muck lords like whatever that Middlesbrough rejects name is...

    You wouldn't think this is our most important season in decades.

    I'm not one to spit the dummy or spout nonsense like sevco have stolen a march on us, and Im actually one of a number of fans who honestly believe Lawell puts the club first...

    BUT

    The season has started, were looking a bit short domestically, certainly for Europe.

    Somebody needs to get the * finger out here, as well as the chequebook

    Why is Fletcher an alternative to Bayo, that's all I'm seeing? In what way? As its body only.

    Obviously if you think it's for physicality then you clearly have never watched him, he ain't outscoring Griff, offers no setpieces quality and has no pace like our forwards.

    Have a pop. In the Scottish National. Thread and see how Fletcher is regarded.

    We don't need a forward unless we sell Ed.

    People need to be calm, we've spent £5m on a GK and added Elyonoussi for the season..

    Good business.

    We will add a LB, CB probably a Winger and one, maybe two ST, depending on who we reatain.

    The Huns sign a couple of players and people start flapping, it's embarrassing..

    The window is open to October our squad is already seriously strong, take a breath.

    Window is open till October but when does our Euro campaign start? Sick of folk telling other to calm down. Take the green specs off everyone.

    Biggest year in our history and we are * about with free transfers. Get players in. Remember we lose 1-0 in Europe away this year there's no dont worry we will do them at Celtic park.

    We are a couple of injuries/suspensions away from Biton at CB * knows who at LB and Steven Fletcher being our main striker. Its criminal

    Knowing Celtic, we won't get all of what you listed, though we do need all of that (2 cbs even)

    I'm not remotely worried though.

    The squad as it stands is more than capable of seeing out this domestic season. It's crying out for boli to be replaced and quality cover in CB.
    But even as it stands, this squad is miles better than anything else in Scotland.

    Ely and Barkas are key signings so far, both vastly improve on what we had going in to this season and both are clearly first team starters with proper pedigree around them.
    That same level at CB and I'm happy.

    Does anyone know if you can get printing on the back of tops if you take an already purchased one into the Celtic shop?

    Bit annoying that we're going to announce Fletcher after our pre-orders.

    I'm kind of hoping the Fletcher situation is just a smoke screen, to put the frighteners on Fry by making it look like we have moved on and his chances of getting any deal for Toney are slipping away. that's probably wishful thinking. It's more likely we are getting Fletcher and hoping to pick up Toney for free next year, which has some very obvious risks attached.

    While I understand that perspective another is that the season has already started and the 2 signings we have made have, at best, kept us at the same level we were at the end of last season. That's assuming the new keeper is as good as Forster, I have no idea if he is, but I doubt he is better (though clearly I'd be delighted if he is). They haven't improved us. Not to mention we have also lost cover in several areas.

    It's not time to panic by any stretch, but we have all seen previous seasons where we expected to strengthen and it just didn't happen, so it is understandable if some people are worried it's going down that same route this year.
