Jussi Jaaskelainen would welcome a move to Celtic, according to his agent Peter Harrison.

Reports in Monday's newspapers suggested the Scottish giants were interested in the Finnish international goalkeeper when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Bolton want to retain their Premier League status before entering talks with any of their players, but this decision may come to haunt them should any of their stars opt to leave.

Harrison maintains he has had no approach from Celtic representatives, but would willingly talk to them should an enquiry be made.

"I haven't spoken to Celtic about Jussi, but it's obviously a massive club and it would certainly appeal to him if he is to move on," Harrison revealed.

"The idea of playing in the Champions League and of winning trophies attracts him. You can't ignore a club like Celtic.

"At the moment he is just focusing on doing well for Bolton until the end of his contract. Some clubs have made contact and we'll see what happens nearer the end of the season."
