Celtic have confirmed Nottingham Forest defender Kevin Wilson has signed a pre-contract deal with the club.

The 25 year old will head north to join his new team-mates in July although Hoops boss Neil Lennon is hopeful of striking a deal with his current club to allow the highly rated centre half to sign during this transfer window.

Lennon told The Scottish Sun  "There may be some movement in the next few weeks. If not, then we'll have him in the summer. If the possibility is there for him to come here in January, then I'd like to have him now.”

"It's up to Forest. They have their own priorities and he is still technically a Forest player.”

The Celts manager is delighted to have captured his man having admired Wilson lining up alongside him three years ago.

He admitted trying to lure the former Notts County and Preston player north during the summer but failed to reach a suitable agreement with Forest.

"I played with him for six months when I was there," said Lennon. "He was 22 and he was still developing physically.”

"We did try and get him in August but there was nothing doing there."
