Steven Mouyokolo: Set to sign for Celtic

The former Hull and Wolves defender has been on trial at Celtic and started in Wednesday's friendly defeat to Ukrainian side Sevastopol.

The 26-year-old has impressed Lennon and the club are ready to hand him a one-year deal at Celtic Park.

Lennon is just waiting for Mouyokolo's medical results before finalising the deal with the French defender having suffered a serious knee injury while on loan at Sochaux in 2012.

"We have liked Mouyokolo for a long time," Lennon told the Daily Record.

"He's had a few injury problems but has come on trial and impressed.

"Things have been agreed more or less. He's done a medical and we're just waiting on the reports coming back and if everything is OK, we'll go ahead with it."

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.
