Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow are believed to be lining up a transfer deadline day swoop for Celtic's Anthony Stokes.

The Republic of Ireland striker has been in top form so far this season with 17 goals in all competitions and his performances have not gone unnoticed by Lokomotiv.

Reports suggest that the sixth-placed Russian Premier League club are preparing a £3million offer for 23-year old Stokes whilst two other Russian outfits, Zenit St Petersburg and CSKA Moscow, are believed to be in pursuit of his striker partner Gary Hooper.
