Neil Lennon watched the player in action during West Bromich Albion's play-off defeat to Aston Villa and will step up his efforts to sign Harper having been given the manager's job on a permanent basis.

The 19-year-old is available this summer as he has this far resisted the offer of a new contract from West Brom.

Celtic are the leading contenders but there are also a number of English Premier League sides said to be interested as Harper mulls over his options.

Celtic would be able to secure the player for a much lower compensation fee than those in England's top flight due to cross-border rules.
