Fraser Forster one of several players to be axed by Southampton

  Fraser Forster one of several players to be axed by Southampton The Daily Express have reported that Southampton will be offloading several players in the upcoming transfer window, with one of those being Fraser Forster. This news only strengthens the possibility of the shot-stopper returning to Celtic for another spell at the club. It has been in the rumour mill for weeks that Forster may be returning to Celtic Park, but it has been subject to negotiations between the clubs. This news indicates that the England international is ready to move on from The Saints and continue the saga that is Fraser Forster and his return to Celtic.

Celtic icon Artur Boruc could be set for an emotional return to Legia Warsaw at the age of 40. The Bournemouth keeper earned six major honours And now the cult Parkhead hero is considering an offer to return to his homeland and play for Legia, the clubs he 's always supported and played for

Artur Boruc says he would keep the door open to a return to Celtic as he confirmed his desire to leave Fiorentina - but admitted he would rather play in a better league. The Polish stopper has decided the Italian league does not suit him and he wants to live somewhere where his family would be happy.

Age-defying Artur Boruc has made an emotional return to Legia Warsaw and the 40-year-old admits he "never really left".

The Polish veteran keeper collected six major honours in a five-year spell at Celtic before moving to Fiorentina 10 years ago. He was back-up keeper at relegated Bournemouth after a spell with Southampton.

But after his contract expired with Bournemouth, he's returned to his first love and signed a one-year deal with Legia.

Celtic interested in signing Albian Ajeti on loan

  Celtic interested in signing Albian Ajeti on loan Celtic are one of the teams interested in signing West Ham United striker Albian Ajeti this summer, according to a report from the Daily Record. The Swiss international arrived at the London Stadium last summer after the Hammers paid an £8million transfer fee to take him from Basel. However, the 23-year-old has failed to make much of an impact and David Moyes is seemingly keen to ship him out of the club as he looks to mould the Hammers’ squad in his own image following his mid-season arrival. Celtic are apparently looking to take the forward on loan, but West Ham are apparently hoping to move the player on permanently and recoup as much of the £8million paid to Basel back.

Celtic have accepted a bid from Fiorentina, reported to be around £1.7m, for their 30-year-old Polish goalkeeper.

Artur Boruc assured Celtic fans last night that he is confident of winning his fitness fight ahead of tomorrow night's Champions League revenge mission against Shakhtar Donetsk. The Polish goalkeeper sparked anxiety among the Parkhead support when he pulled out of Saturday's win over Aberdeen

Boruc was famously pictured last year with a megaphone leading the chants of the Legia Warsaw fans at Ibrox during a Europa League tie against his old rivals Rangers, which then-Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admitted he was unaware of.

And Boruc couldn't hide his delight after returning to Legia after 15 years.

He said: "I never really left Legia...I just worked at other clubs.

"When I was in the stands at Ibrox supporting Legia last year, I had no idea I would actually be back at the club so soon.

"There have been a few occasions down the years since I left in 2005 that there has been interest from Legia, but it's never quite happened.

"Even this time, I was not convinced it would happen until I physically put pen to paper. It's a dream come true for me.

"When Legia knew that I would be leaving Bournemouth we started talking and I am just so pleased we got the deal done. I may have left Legia, but my heart never did."
