Five Aside

Hooper close to agreeing new deal

Celtic manager Neil Lennon believes Gary Hooper is close to agreeing a new contract.

Hooper, 24, has only 18 months remaining on his current deal and his fine form has led to speculation he could be tempted by a move back to England, with Southampton said to be interested.

However, Lennon feels negotiations over an extension have gone well and that the striker is close to committing his future to the Scottish Premier League champions.

"I think we can get an agreement pretty soon," Lennon said in the Daily Record. "I speak to Gary once a week on it and he's comfortable with it. I hope to see [chief executive]Peter Lawwell in the next day or so and he'll come up with a solution. I certainly don't think we're far away."

Lennon, who has spoken of his interest in USA international Juan Agudelo, added that he would ideally like to make a signing or two in January.

"I'd like to add to the squad - to strengthen the left-hand side in the full-back or wide area - but, if I don't, I'm pretty happy with what I have," he said.
