Neil Lennon has reportedly urged Celtic supporters to remain patient in the January transfer window.

As we edge closer to the New Year, speculation about who the Hoops are apparently set to sign next month inevitably increases.

However according to BBC Sport’s gossip round-up via The National, Lennon has asked fans to stay calm in the January window and expect deals to be concluded towards the end of the month.

The Celtic boss has also suggested that some deals may not be concluded until deadline day, meaning supporters could face an anxious wait for new arrivals next month.

READ CELTIC VERDICT

While it is slightly frustrating for supporters to hear that whoever is signed in January is likely to come in towards the dying embers of the window, at least Lennon has been honest about the situation.

Do you think Celtic will have a busy transfer deadline day next month?

Yes

No

And given the amount of current interest in the likes of Odsonne Edouard, Kristoffer Ajer and Olivier Ntcham, Celtic could be set for a tricky window, hence why some deals may have to wait until the end of the month.

The Hoops boss has already revealed he is expecting to make in between two and four signings next month.
