The transfer window closes on Friday.

Lennon did not bite on the prospect of another loan spell at Celtic Park for Leicester City centre-back Filip Benkovic after Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers stated that the Croatian, who played under Rodgers at Parkhead last season, will be farmed out for the second half of this campaign.

“I don’t know is the answer,” Lennon said.”I only worked with Filip for a short term, but I know he had a good impact here last season, so hopefully we’ll be looking to bring one or two in this week.”
