Ismaila Soro offered Celtic transfer escape route as Neil Lennon plots reunion in Cyprus


Neil Lennon has could be set to to raid Celtic as he targets a move for Ismaila Soro, according to multiple reports in Cyprus

The former Hoops boss has enjoyed early success with Omonia having lifted the Cypriot Cup triumph within months of joining the Nicosia club.

Having secured Europa League football he is looking to revamp his side with reports in Cyrprus stating Soro is top of his summer wish list.

Lennon splashed out £2million to sign the 24-year-old from Israeli outfit Bnei Yehuda two and a half years ago.

He enjoyed an impressive run of form last term under Lennon, but has failed to repeat that during Ange Postecoglou ‘s time in charge.

He last started in December in the dead rubber Europa League game against Real Betis, and hasn’t made an appearance since a two-minute cameo against Rangers in Celtic’ s 3-0 win in February.

Lennon is keen to link up again with Soro, who has also attracted interest from Dutch clubs, but he would have to take a significant pay cut to come to Cyprus.

He still has 18 months left in his contract, but Celtic would be keen to do a deal to get him off their books.

Meanwhile, Omonia midfielder Hector Yuste has praised Lennon’s impact since he joined as manager.

The Spanish star said: “Mr Lennon brought a different mentality to the team. He brought new ideas and there is now a totally different atmosphere.

“He had a passion that stems from his character. He was the one who pushed us to reach success.”
