According to a report from the Evening Times, Celtic are reportedly set to miss out on Bournemouth's Jordon Ibe having been interested in signing the winger on loan this summer.
The former Liverpool man has made two substitute appearances for Eddie Howe's men in the Premier League so far this season, with the likes of Ryan Fraser and Harry Wilson keeping him out of the Cherries' side.
But if he is going to leave in the final hours of the transfer window, it would appear that Celtic are not going to be the ones to offer him the way out, with the Evening Times reporting that a potential loan move for Ibe has fallen through.
The report notes that the arrival of Southampton's Mohamed Elyounoussi has seen Celtic lose interest in the wide-man, who joined Bournemouth for a then club-record fee of £15 million in 2016 (via BBC Sport).
With Elyounoussi through the door and Ibe unlikely to be on an underwhelming contract, it is probably not a huge surprise that a move looks to be off the cards at this stage.
With Lennon already boasting a good group of wide players, perhaps he feels that the club's time would be better spent making sure that they strengthen other areas of the squad as the deadline looms.
