CELTIC have been linked with Portuguese outside-left Daniel Podence who looks to be on the way out at Wolves – after only seven months.

The pacy flanker, who started his career at Sporting Lisbon, joined up at the Molineux outfit in a £17million switch from Olympiakos during the January transfer window.

However, the 24-year-old has failed to spark at the Midlands club and has appeared for only 42 minutes in the Premier League.

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo, his fellow-countryman, has overlooked Podence after the enforced lockdown quarantine period, but the forward was an unused substitute in the 1-0 loss to Sheffield United during the week.

Neil Lennon had been alerted to the player before his big-money move to Wolves and the nine-in-a-row champions are reported to be continuing to monitor Podence, according to the Sunday Mirror.

According to the bulletin, the Hoops have made an enquiry about the attacker who could figure in the team’s crucial Premier League meeting with Everton at Molineux at noon today.

Lennon has been looking at strengthening the left-hand side of his team with Mohamed Elyounoussi, who agreed another season-long loan deal from Southampton, and Mikey Johnston as his only alternatives.

He has seen Jonny Hayes, Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan leave Parkhead since the turn of the year.
