Fraser Forster Nears Celtic Return After Undergoing Medical Ahead of Southampton Departure

Fraser Forster is undergoing a medical at Celtic ahead of returning to the club he left to join Southampton five years ago.

The goalkeeper has found playing time limited on the south coast in recent seasons, featuring just 20 times in the league in 2017/18, a figure that dropped to a sole top-flight outing last campaign.

With Ralph Hasenhuttl happy with his goalkeeping options of Angus Gunn and Alex McCarthy, he has given the green light for Forster to leave the St Mary's and return to the club he spent four seasons with.

The move is on its way to being completed after the Scottish Sun reported that Forster was having his medical in Glasgow ahead of the undisclosed transfer.
