Ghanaian defender Jeremie Frimpong is expected to leave Scottish champions Celtic. He is also currently abroad speaking to another club, his manager Neil Lennon has confirmed.
Frimpong still has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal with The Hoops, after joining on a four-year contract from Manchester City last summer.
The 20-year-old has made 46 appearances in all competitions since arriving from the Etihad.
“That’s football, we are disappointed he’s leaving, but he came in for £300,000 and he’s leaving for a huge amount of money,” said Lennon.
A new right-back is now high on Lennon’s priority list before the transfer window closes on February 1.
Lennon has confirmed others have also expressed a desire to leave Celtic but says he does not expect the club to sell any more players this window.
The winter transfer window is open until Monday, February 1 at 11pm.
