CELTIC are interested in signing Jordon Ibe on loan, according to a report in The Sun.

The Cherries winger, 23, has just a year left on his contract at Vitality Stadium and was an unused substitute for Saturday's Premier League opener against Sheffield United.

The transfer window is closed to incoming players in England, but clubs can still sell to other leagues across Europe, including the Scottish Premiership, until September 2.

The report claims Celtic are keen on signing Ibe on a season-long loan, with Napoli, Fiorentina and Espanyol having all "shown interest", as well as Turkish side Galatasaray.

Ibe had previously in the summer been linked with Derby, Middlesbrough and Newcastle before the transfer window in England slammed shut, but the Daily Echo understood that the winger was not keen on a long-distance move so close to the deadline.

London-born Ibe joined Cherries from Liverpool for around £13million in 2016. He has made 88 appearances, scoring five goals.
