Neil Lennon has hinted that the club could look to extend Daniel Arzani's loan deal from Manchester City.

The Australian youngster has barely featured for Celtic since joining the club having suffered a serious ACL injury back on his debut in 2019. He came off the bench against Dundee and seriously damaged his knee. His only appearance since came away to Partick Thistle in this season's Scottish Cup tie.

Playmaker Arzani, 21, signed an 18-month loan deal from the English Premier League giants but it's up at the end of the season. But manager Lennon has admitted that the club could yet make a decision to extend it and allow the player more game time before the end of this current campaign.

Asked if a loan extension might be considered, Lennon responded: "Possibly. He's played a couple of development games and is back training on a regular basis now. 

"We've got another development game coming up so if he comes through that alright, maybe he'll start to feature between now and the end of the season."

We told you recently how Australia legend Mark Schwarzer urged Arzani to leave Parkhead. The former Chelsea goalkeeper explained how he felt the move, even in its infancy, was not the right one for the player. "[Daniel] had a phenomenal breakthrough season in the A-League," Schwarzer told Goal.

"He didn't play enough games over 90 minutes, which is something he needs to build on. The Celtic move is one which I am not sure is the best move for him just yet. But it is about playing games and continuing to develop.

"His injury came at the very worst time as he just arrived and got his first opportunity to play from the start. It was not only unfortunate for his career at Celtic but also for Australia. I just hope that he can get back to the level he was at before his injury.

"He is a huge emerging talent from Australia. That's why Man City signed him."
