CELTIC are reportedly keeping tabs on Netherlands Under-21 goalkeeper Warner Hahn, as the Parkhead side ponder a third raid on the Dutch leagues.

Having already signed Virgil van Dijk and Derk Boerrigter, Neil Lennon could swoop for the ‘keeper who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Hahn has made 23 appearances for Dordrecht, and five for his country including one cap against Scotland Under-21s last month.

Former Ajax youth player Hahn plays for FC Dordrecht in the Netherlands’ second tier - the Eerste Divisie - but the club currently top the league, and Celtic are believed to have been monitoring the 6ft 6in goalie’s progress.

Fraser Forster is Celtic’s first-choice between the sticks, with former Dundee United ‘keeper Lukasz Zaluska providing back-up, but Lennon could make a move for the 21-year-old as he seeks more young talent he could make a profit on.

The Hoops signed Kenyan international Victor Wanyama for around £900,000 from Belgian side Beerschot AC, before selling him to Southampton for a fee in the region of £12 million.

Dutch sources have linked Hahn with top-flight clubs Feyenoord, NAC Breda and Roda JC.
