Goalkeeper Siegrist Close to Celtic move

Celtic are in advanced talks over the signing of Dundee United keeper Benjamin Siegrist.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at Tannadice this summer and has been speaking to a number of interested clubs

Celtic are looking for extra competition for Joe Hart after Vasilis Barkas left for Utrecht on a season-long loan.

Scott Bain is currently Hart's back-up - but Swiss keeper Siegrist could also now be brought in.

He spent four years at Tannadice after starting his career at Aston Villa and is also understood to have options in England, with Preston and Ipswich Town keen to land him.

Celtic are also continuing their pursuit of Lanus left-back Alexandro Bernabei.

The clubs have so far failed to agree on a valuation of the players, with reports in Argentina suggesting that Lanus are looking for a deal worth around £4m for the 21-year-old.
