Fraser Forster: Not for sale despite recent rumours of a move to Benfica

Fraser Forster: Not for sale despite recent rumours of a move to Benfica

Both players have been linked with moves away from the club after impressive performances, but Lennon is not worried about losing either man.

He insists goalkeeper Forster will not be going anywhere despite recent speculation suggesting Benfica could be lining up a swoop.

"It's a rumour that's spread in the last few days. I don't know if they're trying to unsettle the player," said Lennon in the Daily Record.

"There has been no concrete enquiry for him. He's not for sale and there's no way I'd let him go.

"It doesn't surprise me but he's not for sale."

Lennon is also adamant that captain Brown will be staying at the club, saying he is committed to Celtic and has no interest in leaving.

"He is very settled here. He is midway through a long-term contract at the minute and has never made any moves to me about wanting to go," explained the manager.

"He's got a young family now and I think he sees ending his career here."

Striker Georgios Samaras does not believe there is any need for Brown to go and test himself in England when he is already at such a special club.

"His quality is at a really high level. He is the captain of Celtic, he has been here for seven years I think, six months longer than me," said Samaras.

"He is one of the captains of Scotland. Sometimes you don't need to go somewhere to prove yourself or for people to believe in you.

"His mentality is that he will never quit Celtic to go to a club in the Premiership and fight for 11th just to prove something. He will stay here and play European football and win titles."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
