The agent of Manchester United fullback Alexander Buttner has revealed an approach from Celtic.

Buttner's agent Aleksander Bursac admits Hoops boss Neil Lennon is keen on a loan deal.

He told STV: "Yes, Celtic would like to take the player on loan for the season. We feel it would greatly help the boy's development to be playing regularly at that level and in European football.

"Celtic are a really great club. They (Celtic) have been back and forward in dialogue with Manchester United. It's in their hands now as we are not sure if they want to release him."
