Celtic reportedly want Leicester City defender Filip Benkovic on loan for the remainder of the season, as Dedryck Boyata is expected to depart the club before the transfer deadline on Friday.

Benkovic only joined the Foxes earlier this month for a fee of £13m but has not made an appearance for the Premier League side in their opening three games.

According to the Daily Mail, Brendan Rodgers is eyeing up a loan move for the Croatian centre-back, which will allow the club to sell Boyata this week.

The report adds that Aberdeen's Scott McKenna and Le Havre's Harold Moukoudi are also on the list of potential incomings at Celtic Park.

Boyata, who was linked with a £9m move to Fulham before the Premier League transfer deadline, netted the winner for Celtic in their fixture against Hamilton on Sunday.
