Neil Lennon: Looking at trialist Nicolas Mezquida

The 21-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Uruguayan side Centro Atletico Fenix.

Mezquida, who began his career with Penarol, has experience of playing in Europe before after spells on loan in Norway with Brann and Lillestrom.

The former Uruguay youth international has now linked up with Celtic for training at the club's Lennoxtown base so Lennon and his coaching staff can cast an eye over him.

Lennon is still looking to bolster his attacking options after allowing Tony Watt to leave on loan to Lierse SK on transfer deadline day.
