Neil Lennon will watch the Scotland striker Jordan Rhodes at Wembley today.

The Celtic manager is flying south to take in the npower League 1 play-off final between Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United and it will be Rhodes, who has netted 40 goals in 45 matches for the Yorkshire club this season, which he will focus his attention on as he contemplates a move for the striker.

Barclays Premier League clubs Aston Villa, Norwich City, Fulham and West Ham United have all been linked with a move for the 21-year-old and Lennon could join the race for his signature.

Lennon is desperate to bolster his attacking options and that means adding another player to his striking trio of Gary Hooper, Georgios Samaras and Anthony Stokes.

Simon Grayson, the manager, said: "He's hot property. Anyone who's scored 40 goals at any level will be in demand but every player has got a price tag. He's very down to earth and is first to acknowledge what the team has done. We don't have to sell him – we turned down big money for him in January. We'll have to see how things go."

Lennon is continuing to search for an experienced centre-half to improve his defence as he eyes up Champions League qualification but much could depend on how much money he is allocated by the Parkhead board.

The Parkhead club have announced that they will play Real Madrid in a friendly in Philadelphia, in the USA, on August 11 at the 70,000-seater Lincoln Financial Field.
