Exeter unable to agree loan deal for Celtic keeper

Celtic keeper Scott Fox's move to join Exeter City has fallen through because of a "rights situation". The 22-year-old keeper has spent the last month training with the St James Park side but despite impressing the club, he has been told he will lose out because Celtic still hold his registration papers.

Steve Perryman, director of football at the League One side said: "He is a nice lad, a good player and we liked him.

"But we didn't like him enough yet to offer him the length of contract needed to satisfy this rights situation with Celtic as well as the player himself.

"Because Celtic had him as a young player they still retain his rights and on this occasion we aren't in a position to offer the host club the deal they desire."
