Celtic are interested in Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster according a report from Sky Sports.

Sky say that the Hoops have made an approach for Joe Hart, as was reported yesterday by Fabrizio Romano.

The 34-year-old is out of favour at Spurs, especially after the recent signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.

Hart has another year to run on the two-year deal he signed at Spurs last year.

The report also says that Spurs are keen to sell a number of first-team players this summer, to help raise funds to rebuild their squad.

Ben Foster to Celtic link is interesting

The report tells us nothing new about Celtic’s reported interest in Hart.

The mention of fellow former England goalkeeper Foster is an interesting one.

The keeper is 38-years-old now, and was a semi-regular as Watford were promoted to the Premier League last season.

The veteran started the season as Watford’s number one before being replaced by Austria’s number one Daniel Bachmann.

Foster has played in all three of Watford’s friendlies so far this season.

Celtic badly need a goalkeeper, but many may question whether either Foster of Hart would have what it takes at the tail end of their careers.

It’s one to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
