JORDAN IBE, a target for Celtic boss Neil Lennon last summer, will be available for FREE at the end of the season.

The winger has been told by Bournemouth that his £40,000-per-week contract will not be renewed in June.

Ibe, 24, cost £15million when he joined from Liverpool in 2016, but has rarely featured in this campaign and hasn’t started a game since September.

He has made 119 Premier League appearances for the club. However, the former England Under-21 star’s career has stalled and Lennon could follow up his initial interest in the forward.

The Hoops gaffer could be looking for reinforcements in the wide areas with Mohamed Elyounoussi’s season-long loan from Southampton due to expire.

It is unclear if Lennon would like to make the deal permanent, but the south coast club are reported to be looking for £8million for the Norwegian international which may be too steep for the Parkhead men.

Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan both left the Hoops in the January transfer window with the Englishman joining Championship side Preston and the Scotland international agreeing a switch to David Beckham’s MLS club Inter Miami.
