Everton are reportedly lining up a move to bring in Celtic boss Neil Lennon to replace David Moyes this summer according to the Daily Mail.

The Goodison Park side may well be set to lose their long serving boss, who is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract, with his current deal coming to a close this summer.

Parkhead manager Lennon appears to be open to such a switch and this source claims that the former Northern Ireland international midfielder would jump at the chance of managing a team at the top end of the Premier League table.

Lennon has refused to rule out the possibility of a Celtic exit and is on a yearly rolling contract.

‘If I was going to leave Celtic, I would go to one of the big clubs but they’re all on lockdown pretty much with the good managers they have already, It’s difficult to break into that pack anyway.

‘Football is very unpredictable — a week is a long time in football, never mind a season.
‘We’ll take stock of things and chat about things at the end of the season.

‘The board have been brilliant with me. They’ve never put me under pressure and never interfered in what we’re trying to do, so I’m lucky to have people like that behind me.’

Lennon added: ‘I don’t know how long my future is (at Celtic).

‘But I do know I love it here. The club means so much to me, it has given me the greatest days of my life and, as manager, it’s the greatest privilege I’ve had in my life.’

The 41 year old boss led Celtic to the SPL title last weekend and was lavished with praise following the club’s impressive Champions League run that saw them defeat the likes of Barcelona and Spartak Moscow before losing to Juventus in the last 16.

Lennon spent seven years as a player at Celtic before taking over from Tony Mowbray on a temporary basis in March 2010, taking the reins permanently a few months later.
