FORMER Celtic fans’ favourite Artur Boruc is likely to be looking for his third club in a year at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old Polish keeper’s loan deal with Bournemouth expires in June – at the same time as his contract runs down at Southampton.
And it looks as though Saints boss Ronald Koeman will look elsewhere for a replacement for Fraser Forster with the ex-Hoops No.1 possibly sidelined for a year with a complicated tendon injury.
Koeman will persist with Kelvin Davis, 38, as Forster’s stand-in until the end of the current campaign.
However, the St.Mary’s gaffer will not offer Boruc an extension and, instead, is lining up a summer swoop for Reading’s Australian international Adam Federici.
That will leave Boruc out in the cold for the first time in his career.
Gordon Strachan took him to Parkhead for a bargain £800,000 from Legia Warsaw in 2005 and he remained for five years before moving to Serie A outfit Fiorentina for £1.2million.
Three years ago he joined Southampton, but lost his first team place when Koeman splashed £10million on Forster before the start of the season.
He originally joined Premier-League chasing Bournemouth on a short-term contract, but agreed to extend it until the end of the campaign.
