Celtic defender Shane Duffy will not leave the club early and will stay at Parkhead until his loan spell ends, according to Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph.
Duffy here to stay
The 29-year-old made the move up north from Premier League side Brighton in the summer and has received heavy criticism from the fans over some of his performances.
He added that the £8.55m-rated centre-back attracted interest from English Championship club Nottingham Forest – but they did not make an official move and are not looking to sign a defender this month.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Duffy has had a tough time at Celtic because the expectations at the club are sky-high considering what they have achieved in the last nine years.
Despite this, Duffy has averaged the second-highest match rating for a centre-back at the club with 7.30, just behind Christopher Jullien (Whoscored).
Perhaps if he can regain some form, fitness and confidence the Irishman can become a valuable asset in the second half of the season for Lennon.
