Celtic manager Neil Lennon has ruled out the sale of highly sought after goalkeeper Fraser Forster after discussing the player’s future with the rest of the board, Sky Sports reports.

Forster finally signed a permanent four-year deal at Parkhead last summer after spending two successful seasons on loan from Newcastle United, only now he is turning the heads of a number of Premier League sides such as Norwich City and Sunderland.

However, Lennon has said that there is no pressure to sell the 25-year-old, and he is confident that the club can keep hold of him and help him get back into the England side.

“Fraser is not for sale,” said Lennon.

“I’ve spoken to the board about him and he’s a key player. We signed him on a long-term contract last year.

“We don’t need to sell him and we don’t want to. He’s not for sale at any price. If it’s up to me he definitely won’t be for sale.

“I was disappointed Fraser was left out of the England squad at the end of the season because he’s good enough to play for them.

“We got him into the England squad in the first place. It was with us and through his own performances he got a chance. I’m hoping he can replicate some of those displays again for us this season.”
