Celtic boss Neil Lennon has given the green light for Marian Shved to find a new club, Football Insider understands.

The forward has been told he is free to move on, either permanently on loan, after failing to make an impact since his £2million arrival in January of last year.

A Celtic source has told Football Insider that a loan move for Shved is the most likely option amid interest from multiple clubs across Europe.

The Ukraine international, 23, has made it clear to Celtic he wants regular playing time to reignite his career and keep his place in the Ukraine national team.

Manager Neil Lennon does not regard Shved as a key part of his plans for their 10-in-a-row chasing campaign.

Tellingly, he did not make the 20-man matchday squad for the opening-day 5-1 win over Hamilton at Parkhead.

Karamoko Dembele, the 17-year-old sensation who is also a left-footed winger operating mainly on the right flank, was preferred to Shved and was given a late run-out as a substitute.

Shved has only made three appearances for Celtic despite arriving with a big reputation as a star of the future.

James Forrest, Tom Rogic, Ryan Christie, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Mikey Johnstone have been among those keeping the Ukraine international on the sidelines.

The forward, who joined Celtic in January of last year before returning to Kiev-based outfit Karpaty on loan, has not made a squad for an SPL match since his single outing in the competition, against Ross County last October.

In other Celtic news, a Glasgow-born international has been tipped to sign for the Hoops after approach made.
