CELTIC have emerged as the shock favourites to sign Ryan Fraser.

The Bournemouth winger is out of contract at the Cherries at the end of the month and he has been heavily linked with moves to Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal in recent weeks.

But now in a shock movement of the bookies market, Neil Lennon's Celtic have been installed as favourites to sign the Scotland international. 

A Paddy Power spokesperson said: “Ryan Fraser was wanted by England’s big six last summer, until Bournemouth blocked his exit – meaning he’s basically been on a gap year since.

“Football is a fickle game, and those same clubs appear to now being looking elsewhere, leaving the door wide open for Celtic to land a big signing – albeit not literally, bless him.”
