Swedish giants Malmo are preparing a big money deal to sign Celtic defender Mikael Lustig this summer, according to The Celtic Star

The report claims that fellow Swedish side AIK Stockholm are also keen on the player, who is out of contract at Celtic Park in the summer. 

The 32-year-old made the move to Scotland in 2012 and has gone on to become a regular in the Hoops side in his seven-year stay.

However, with his current deal expiring in the summer, Lustig is free to talk to other sides ahead of a free transfer move. 

Celtic do have the option to extend the defender’s deal for a further 12 months, something which the club are yet to do, increasing speculation of a summer exit. 

Lustig’s last possible appearance for Celtic could come this weekend, as Neil Lennon’s side take on Hearts in the Scottish Cup final, knowing a win would secure a historic ‘treble treble’.
