Former Southampton star Carlton Palmer insists that goalkeeper Fraser Forster could join Celtic on a free transfer next summer once his contract expires.
The 6 ft 7 goalkeeper has enjoyed a number of spells at the Scottish champions in recent seasons.
Forster spent the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons on loan at the club, before making that move permanent in 2012. He remained there for two years and joined Southampton, but returned to the Hoops for the 2019/20 season.
Would Forster be a good signing for Celtic?
Yes, get him in!
No, don't need him now!
In the 19/20 season, Forster made 39 appearances for the club, but he struggled for minutes upon his return to Southampton, playing 13 times in all competitions.
He has been on the bench thus far this term, apart from the EFL Cup clash with Newport County, which the Saints won 8-0.
His contract is set to expire at the end of this season and Palmer believes that a move to Celtic could happen once the season is over.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “Absolutely, he’s got an affinity with the supporters there so, yeah, I could easily see that happening, with Celtic also in the financial position that they’re in, I think he’d be a good fit on a free.
“I could definitely see that happening.”
