Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed to let French forward Jeremie Aliadiere join Celtic on loan for next season.

Wenger told the Daily Record: “It is a possibility. There are other clubs interested in him but it’s fair to say that Celtic are the favourites.

“I would be happy for him to go to Celtic. He would have the chance of getting some experience of European football.

“I have spoken with Gordon Strachan but it’s now up to the player so I can’t say much more.

“We should expect his answer in the next week.”
