CELTIC have opened talks with Fraser Forster with a view to signing the goalkeeper in the summer and announced that his deputy, Lukasz Zaluska, has penned a new three-year contract.

Forster has been on loan for the past two seasons and Neil Lennon, the Celtic manager, is keen to make the move permanent. Forster revealed that a transfer fee between the clubs had been agreed as part of the loan arrangement and that his representative has held initial discussions with Peter Lawwell, the Celtic chief executive.

"That is all there has been, but there is plenty of time until the end of the season, plenty of time to get it sorted," added the player. "I came to play games. That's all I have thought about to be honest. I just want to get to the end of the season, keep playing games and keep this run that we are on going and pick up some silverware on the way. When all the football is played I am happy to sit down and get it all done. This is a massive club and I have had a great two years here. I couldn't have asked for any more from it. "

Celtic, who also hope to extend Thomas Rogne's contract, will look to make it an 18th domestic win in succession against Hibernian at Easter Road tomorrow. Rangers being deducted 10 points earlier in the week for going into administration has eased Celtic's route to the title but Lennon is not taking anything for granted.

"We had a brief chat about it and the players aren't like that. At the minute, there is a really healthy competition for places and the players want to play. Come Sunday at 3pm, they will be focusing totally on Hibs. The supporters will think differently but we can't as professionals. We have to get the job done.

"We have two winnable games coming up, Hibs away and Dunfermline at home and then we'll see where the situation lies after that. There are a lot of games to be played. People saying we have won the title is disrepectful to every team we have to play."
