Lennon hopeful of keeping Forster and Elyounoussi at Celtic for next season

Celtic manager Neil Lennon is hopeful of keeping the services of goalkeeper Fraser Forster and winger Mohamed Elyounoussi for next season, even though their loan spells from Southampton are set to expire at the end of June.

The pair joined the Scottish champions from the Saints last summer on a temporary basis, and both have played an important role in the team winning the Premiership again, particularly Forster with his 28 league appearances, starting every game since making the switch. Even though nothing has yet been agreed regarding the future arrangements, they’ve joined the team in their pre-season preparations.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Lennon said it was good to see the two back working with the team, but admitted that they are not Celtic’s players and it remains to be seen how the negotiations with Southampton go. Fraser has two years remaining on his contract with the Premier League side, Elyounoussi two.

However, Lennon believes that their involvement with Celtic in 2020/21 could help his team maintain continuity.
