PREMIERSHIP side Stoke City are considering Celtic manager Neil Lennon as a candidate to replace Tony Pulis at the end of the season
The Parkhead manager has been discussed at boardroom level, according to reports on Sunday, and is being considered alongside Arsenal number 2 Steve Bould who could be appointed as his assistant.
Pulis has near enough secured the Potters’ status as a Premier league club however the club’s form has been patchy in the second half of the season fueling speculation that he may be set to move on.
The Celtic manager has spoken of his ambition to manage a Premiership club and has been linked with a move to Everton following the departure of David Moyes to Manchester United.
Lennon is reported to be third choice for the position should Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and Cardiff’s Malky Mackay decline the role.
His Parkhead side were presented with the SPL trophy yesterday with Lennon presenting his SPL winner’s medal to a young Celtic supporter in the crowd.
Lennon is on a rolling one year contract which is reported to be worth around £800,000 a year plus bonuses.
