Teemu Pukki: Remains a top target for Celtic boss Neil Lennon

Neil Lennon has made Pukki a top target as he looks to bolster his attacking options before the summer transfer window closes.

It was suggested that an injury to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could scupper his plans, with Schalke reluctant to leave themselves short in an important area of the field.

It would, however, appear as though a deal is not dead.

Schalke are playing their cards close to their chest, but concede that Celtic are still looking to put a deal in place for a 23-year-old striker who is under contract in Germany until 2014.

Heldt told Sky Deutschland: "Celtic FC are interested in signing Teemu Pukki. I can confirm this.

"Teemu has a contract at our club and he is a Schalke player. At the moment, I am unable to confirm anything else."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
