CELTIC goalkeeping target David Marshall is understood to have been offered a quick deal from another English Championship club as administration-hit Wigan look to get players out the door.

The Scotland internationalist is one of a number of keepers that the Parkhead side have looked at following the departure of Craig Gordon to Hearts last week and the end of Fraser Forster’s season-long loan deal.

AEK Athens and Greek stopper Vasilios Barkas has also been the subject of an enquiry from Celtic.

Forster was understood to be the main target of the Parkhead side although with the Englishman preferring the option of a permanent deal it remains unclear whether something could be agreed with Southampton.

St Mary’s manager Ralph Hasenhuttl held discussions with Forster earlier this week but seemed to re-ignite speculation that a deal could yet be done to allow the player to leave.

“We have not decided what we do next season with our plans in this direction,” said Hassenhuttl when asked about Forster yesterday afternoon.

“Of our loan players, some did a very good job there and it’s also clear that loan players don’t want to go again on loan.

“Normally they want to go permanently somewhere and we will find the right solution for every player in the summer. When the right moment is to discuss it, then we do it.”
