Skysports.com understands Celtic are lining up a loan swoop for Fulham forward Diomansy Kamara before the transfer window closes.

Kamara has found himself well down the pecking order at Fulham and he is keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football.

Celtic boss Tony Mowbray is ready to offer Kamara a switch to Parkhead as he looks to continue his reshaping of the current Bhoys squad.

Mowbray is a big admirer of Kamara having worked with him during his time in charge of West Brom and he is hoping to tie up a loan deal before the transfer window slams shut on Monday.

A number of Premier League clubs were thought to be keen on signing Kamara, but it appears Celtic have won the race to land the Senegal international on loan until the end of the season.

Kamara is expected to travel up to Scotland this weekend to tie up the deal which he has arranged through his own agency.

Kamara could be a replacement for Scott McDonald with the Australian international being linked with moves to both West Ham and Middlesbrough.
