Celtic have given Newcastle United goalkeeper Fraser Forster until the end of the month to make a decision over his transfer.

The Daily Mail says the Parkhead club have agreed a £2million fee with Newcastle United for the stopper but that price guarantee only holds until the end of this month.

With Celtic due to return for pre-season training on July 2 - and Champions League qualifiers scheduled for the end of that month - manager Neil Lennon cannot afford to ask for the agreement over the fee to be extended any longer while he awaits Forster's answer.
