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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
