Charly Musonda looking forward to Celtic move as club look to sign goalkeeper

Premier League

Celtic snapped up Chelsea midfielder Charly Musonda on an 18-month loan deal and immediately turned their attention to signing a new goalkeeper.

The Scottish champions failed in a bid to sign Motherwell’s Trevor Carson but could return with an improved offer after seeing a reported 200,000 proposal thrown out. The 29-year-old has impressed since joining Motherwell on a three-year contract in the summer following a 10,000 move from Hartlepool. Celtic are on the lookout for a keeper after Brendan Rodgers revealed Craig Gordon would be out for 12 weeks with a knee injury, while Musonda will provide some creativity in the absence of Leigh Griffiths, who will be missing for four weeks with a calf problem.
