Celtic target Johansen move

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed his interest in signing Norway international Stefan Johansen.

The Scottish side have been tracking the Stromsgodset midfielder as they weigh up a move during this month's transfer window.

Lennon has admitted Celtic have made an enquiry for Johansen and could table a bid for the 23-year-old later this week as they look to steal a march on their rivals for his signature.

"There is an interest and we have made an enquiry for him but I don't know how far down the line we are with it," Lennon told the Daily Record.

"He's a good young player we've had watched a couple of times."

Asked if a bid for Johansen was imminent, Lennon added: "Maybe this week. We are hoping that's just one of a few irons in the fire."
