Ralph Hassenhuttl insists he's ready to wait until the end of the Premier League season before focusing on any transfer business.

The Southampton boss has previously discussed Fraser Forster's future and admitted he'd be willing to allow the Celtic goalkeeper target to leave on a permanent transfer this summer. However the Austrian says he and his team must concentrate entirely on their remaining fixtures before considering any moves in or out of St Mary's.

And that would throw a spanner in the works as Celtic still hope to sort a deal for the Englishman.

"I don’t concentrate so much on the transfer market to be honest," the manager said. "I know we have some targets but it is such a busy time, I have to focus on getting a performance from my team and the opponents we are facing.

"It costs a lot of energy at the moment to find the right game plan. You can imagine if you are playing teams like (Manchester) City and United you need a perfect game otherwise you have no chance. So there is a lot of preparing, especially with two or three days between games.

"My scouts are giving me some information in the players that are of interest to us, we are busy in the background."

Celtic have identified Joe Hart and David Marshall as other targets should the Forster move indeed be dead in the water.
