eil Lennon has predicted "bedlam" in his transfer dealings when he returns from Celtic's four-game tour of the US and Canada tomorrow.[LNB] The new Hoops' manager has already signed Joe Ledley, Efrain Juarez, Daryl Murphy, Cha Du-Ri and Charlie Mulgrew, while David James, Sol Campbell and Jimmy Bullard have been targeted.[LNB]Gary Hooper, Liam Lawrence and Kelvin Wilson are also on Lennon's radar - and the Northern Irishman is keen to do more business.[LNB]"My hands have been full over here. The bedlam will really start when we get back," he said.[LNB]Lennon revealed Mexican midfielder Juarez faces a race against time as he bids to face Braga in next week's Champions League qualifier.[LNB]The 22-year-old met his new team-mates in Seattle on Sunday but is now back in Mexico attempting to negotiate the red tape that will allow him to jet into Glasgow next week.[LNB]The former Celtic skipper said: "Juarez is back home to sort out paperwork, his visa and his work permit.[LNB]"We're trying to rush that through and hopefully he'll be with us early next week and he will be in squad for Braga.[LNB]"He made a really good initial impression. His English is quite good which helps.[LNB]"We're excited about him and we're hoping he is as well.[LNB]"He's young too and if he does well there will be a re-sale value, although we want him to stay as long as he wants at the club and hopefully he will be a big player for us.[LNB]"We see him as part of the future."
