Celtic are one of the teams interested in signing Wigan Athletic teenager Joe Gelhardt this summer as Lennon looks to bolster his 9 in a row winning squad.

The English Championship club are currently in administration and reports suggest that Wigan are eager to get players out the door as they are desperate to pay next months bills.

The Wigan striker is thought to be on Lennon’s radar and a bid could be made this week, as reports suggest that other clubs are taking an interest in Gelhardt the Scottish Champions would have to act fast if they want their man.

With clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Southampton and Leeds United all prepared to battle it out for his signature, Celtic’s key negotiation skill could be the chance of regular first team football and some Euro experience thrown in.

Nick Hammond seems to be an expert when it comes to seeking out future talent from English football, most of which would be happy playing first team football rather than an extra £10,000 on their wages, we have seen players such as Luca Connell, Jeremie Frimpong, Jonathan Afolabi and Lee O’Connor all arriving from down south in 2019.
