Another 'keeper about to be on the books - unfortunately not Shay Given Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster is about to agree a loan move to Parkhead, subject to a medical, on Monday after he watched the 4-0 win over St Mirren on Sunday. Celtic manager Neil Lennon sounded out Norwich counterpart Paul Lambert, where Forster has previously been on loan, before deciding on a signing that will place pressure on current first choice Lukasz Zaluska. Lennon said: "He's a big boy, he's come highly recommended, I've watched him myself a couple of times. His age, 22, is the only thing going against him because otherwise he's all the qualities you look for in a goalkeeper. He's got a massive presence and he's come highly recommended from people in the game whose opinion I trust, so if the medical goes okay, we'll take him on board. We've needed competition in that area so he'll add to that."
