Celtic will reportedly offer free agent Danny Simpson a two-year deal in the coming days, according to Football Insider.

The report suggests that the Hoops will now make a move for the right-back, after the former Leicester City defender agreed to train with the club ahead of a proposed deal.

A two-year contract will be worth £3.1 million, with Simpson set to be offered a base salary of £30,000-a-week.

Neil Lennon is thought to be a big admirer of the 32-year-old, who played a key role in Leicester’s remarkable Premier League triumph three years ago.

The Hoops are currently lacking a senior right-back option following the departure of Mikael Lustig, with Lennon hoping to bring in at least two full-back additions ahead of the new season.

Celtic had been looking at both Tommy Smith and George Baldock, however, it appears as if the Hoops are now ready to offer for the former Foxes defender a lucrative deal at Celtic Park.
