ON loan Celtic striker John Guidetti is in talks with Sporting Lisbon, according to reports.

The Manchester City forward had been linked with a move to Feyenoord however Dutch media have reported the Portugeueese side are interesting in securing his services.

Celtic are yet to make a formal offer for the Swede who has scored 15 goals in 35 outings for the Parkhead side and is out of contract in the summer.

After a strong start in the SPFL, the 23 year-old’s form has dipped and has been less prolific in front of goal.

He was found guilty this week by an SFA Judicial Panel of making a comment of an offensive nature towards Rangers.

The Swedish international avoided a fine or suspension for his breach of SFA rules and was instead censured by the panel.

Guidetti was cited by SFA compliance officer Tony McGlennan for singing a song which refers to Rangers as “huns” during an interview with Dutch television programme FC Rijnmond in March.

Asked to recite the lyrics of a song the Celtic support have sung about him this season, the 23-year-old sang: “Oh John Guidetti, puts the ball in the net-y, he’s a Super Swede and the huns are deid, walking in Guidetti wonderland.”
