Neil Lennon has played down talk of a loan move for Tottenham midfielder Niko Kranjcar and Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis.
Recent reports had suggested that both players were January signing targets for the Celtic boss but he has denied making a move to take either player to Parkhead. Croatian star Kranjcar is though to be on his way out of White Hart Lane while Ramis, who was on the verge of a move to Glasgow last January, was said to be available if a transfer bid was made.
"I don't know anything about a move for Kranjcar," Lennon told Sky Sports..
"He's a good player but I've had no contact with anyone at Tottenham.
"And the same goes for suggestions we're back in for Ramis. That's news to me."
Though ruling out two transfers, the Celtic boss did confirm he was seriously interested in landing two players he thought could improve his squad for very little outlay. Swedish midfielder Freddie Ljungberg and Canadian Dwayne De Rosario have both been training at Lennoxtown and Lennon said there could be real value in both players.
"These are the opportunities that come along in the transfer window," he said. "I would imagine some sort of deal could be done which won't cost us a lot of money.
"There are players available who won't cost us big bucks but could turn out to be a huge bonus for us."
De Rosario’s situation has been complicated by the fact that his current employer, MLS side Toronto FC, were not aware that he had travelled to Glasgow. The player took part in a training session with Celtic on Tuesday but has been prevented from showing what he can do until an agreement has been reached between Celtic, Toronto and the MLS.
