Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has paved the way for goalkeeper Fraser Forster to leave the English Premier League side in the January transfer window.
The 32-year-old has not played a single game for the Saints this season and Hasenhuttl suggests the Saints are open to discussing the departure of any player for the right price:
“I am never scared of any transfer window because this is the way we go. When we are performing well and other clubs are coming wanting to take our players and give you the money you want, you always discuss it.”
Celtic are thought to be considering reviving their interest in Forster after the keeper turned down a loan move to Parkhead last summer in order to fight for his first-team place at Southampton.
However, Hasenhuttl has selected Alex McCarthy in every match so far this campaign and Forster may well have a change of heart about his future when the window reopens next month.
The Hoops have now opted to start Conor Hazard after both Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain failed to convince Neil Lennon. With the Scottish champions struggling to find an answer between the sticks, they would likely be keen to see Forster return for another spell.
