Southampton are willing to go higher for Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

The People says Southampton are ready to make a new £9million bid for Celtic's Forster.

The Saints had an opening £6m offer for the England keeper turned down by the Scottish champions, but they plan to return.

And the move could go through fast if the Hoops exit the Champions League in their third-qualifying round match against Legia Warsaw.

Forster, 26, will not push for a move, ­according to sources close to him, but he does expect the deal to go through in this window.
