Steven Fletcher has been offered a one-year contract at Celtic, although the former Sheffield Wednesday forward wants a longer deal at the Scottish Premiership champions, according to the Daily Record.
The last time the 33-year-old striker had a season this good, Scott McDonald was firing a Celtic team of Paul Hartley, Gary Caldwell and Shunsuke Nakamura to the league title.
With 13 goals in 27 Championship games for Sheffield Wednesday, Fletcher enjoyed his most prolific campaign since 2007/08 last time out.
After leaving Hillsborough on a free when his contract expired, it seems the former Scotland intentional could be rewarded for his match-winning displays with a move to one of the biggest clubs in European football.
Yet there is still work to be done.
Fletcher, at 33, would rather avoid a situation where he finds himself without a club once again this time next year.
As the Record points out, the one-time Sunderland and Burnley favourite is demanding more than the 12-month contract put on the table by Celtic.
While Odsonne Edouard is going nowhere this summer, committed as he is to making that ‘ten a row’ dream a reality, Fletcher would provide some much-needed competition for the reigning SPFA Player of the Year.
But with Leigh Griffiths still around and Patryk Klimala starting to prove his worth, it remains to be seen how the veteran striker adapts to a back-up role after four years as Sheffield Wednesday’s main man.
