Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has revealed he is hoping to join a Premier League club in the near future.
The 24-year-old began his career at Newcastle, but left the club due to fierce competition for starting places without making a single league appearance.
He has since largely impressed at Parkhead, catching the attention of some top clubs from England’s top flight.
Forster admits he would love to return to the English Premier League, but only if he is guaranteed a regular starting berth.
“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League and hopefully I’ll get the chance to do that,” the talented keeper said to The Times.
“For me, I need to be playing. I’d be a nightmare as a No.2 goalkeeper because I want to play so much.
“It’s important that I’m a No.1 and I won’t be leaving to go and sit on a bench somewhere.”
Forster has been in scintillating form ever since he joined the Bhoys in the summer of 2010, with the Scottish giants finally making his stay permanent last summer.
He has started 26 Scottish Premier League fixtures this term and made another 12 appearances in UEFA Champions League.
Forster was included in England squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland, but he has yet to make an international debut.
