STEVEN FLETCHER has been offered a one-year contract by Celtic and is mulling over the move.

The 33-year-old Scotland international striker is a free agent after quitting Sheffield Wednesday at the end of his contract in June.

Negotiations have taken place with the former Hibs frontman, but an agreement has yet to be reached with the 33 times-capped forward, according to BBC Sport.

The Hoops’ proposal comes with a 12-month extension option which is likely to swing it in the favour of the nine-in-a-row champions while other English Championship sides, with Stoke City believed to be among them, continue to monitor the situation.

Former Burnley, Wolves and Sunderland attacker Fletcher knocked back a new deal with the Hillsborough side after spending four years in Yorkshire.

He scored 13 goals in 30 appearances last season as Wednesday finished in 16th place.

Parkhead gaffer Neil Lennon is looking to strengthen his firing squad options and has also made an unsuccessful £5million bid for Peterborough marksman Ivan Toney, who netted 24 goals last season fr the English League One outfit.

West Ham’s Swiss international Albian Ajeti has also been offered a season-long loan deal with the view to a permanent £5million switch if he impresses at Scotland’s title kings.
