Sky Sports understands Celtic are eyeing a move for Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt before the transfer window slams shut.

Republic of Ireland international Hunt has been left out of the Wolves starting line-up for their two most recent Premier League matches, a defeat by Chelsea and draw against Tottenham, where he came on as a second-half substitute.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is thought to be an admirer of Hunt and he is now weighing up a move for the all-action winger as he looks to bolster his squad.

Former Reading man Hunt could be tempted by a move to Celtic as he looks for regular first-team football to boost his chances of breaking into the Ireland side for this summer's Euro 2012 finals.

Hunt has made 46 appearances for Wolves and scored seven goals since arriving from Hull in the summer of 2010.
