CELTIC target Warner Hahn has said he would be willing to hold talks over a move to Celtic - but only if he is guaranteed to be the first choice goalkeeper.

Netherlands Under-21 international Hahn told the Daily Record: “I would not join any club to be the number two keeper - I want to be number one.

“Of course Celtic might be thinking they will get offers for the very good goalkeeper they have now.

“But I certainly wouldn’t accept being the number two keeper anywhere.”

Celtic manager Neil Lennon is aware that current Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster - who may find himself presented with a chance at international level following Joe Hart’s loss of form - could be a target for Europe’s otp sides following a string of impressive performances in the Champions League, and could move to snap up the towering Dutchman, who is currently plying his trade in the Netherlands’ second tier but has been tipped to succeed at the highest level.

Hahn has also hinted that he has one eye on claiming the number one slot for the international side, adding: “If I am playing Champions League football that will give me a much greater chance [of being Netherlands number one].

“To play against teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich really tests your ability - and is great preparation for playing international football.

“I have heard about Celtic’s interest in me and of course it’s always nice to be linked with a move to such a big club.

“I have the option to move on in the summer so it will be interesting to see what offers I get.”
