Bhoys close in on Murphy

16 Jul 2010 - 08:48:55

Sunderland striker Daryl Murphy is on the verge of signing for Celtic as Neil Lennon continues to revamp his squad.

The Republic of Ireland international is surplus to requirements at the Stadium of Light and looks set to be on his way to Parkhead in a £1.5million switch.

He spent the final four months of last season on loan at Ipswich Town where he scored six goals in 18 appearances.

Lennon said: "I think we're pretty close with Murphy. If we can get it done, we'll get him over here if we can.

"I watched him a few years ago when he was playing for Ireland in a tour of America and he impressed me. If we get him, ideally I would still be looking for another striker."

Lennon has also confirmed that he is stepping up his search for a new goalkeeper after allowing Artur Boruc to join Fiorentina.

He added: "I'm still looking for a keeper. We have a list but I'm not going to name individuals."
