Gustaf Lagerbielke is reportedly "no closer" to finding a new club and leaving Celtic.

This is according to the Daily Record who claim that the centre-back appears to be staying put at Parkhead despite recent interest from Serie A.

Lagerbielke joined from Elfsborg for £3million during the summer transfer window but has struggled to make an impact at Parkhead.

The Sweden international has made just nine appearances for the Scottish champions, with his only goal coming in the 2-1 victory over Feyenoord in the Champions League.

Despite injuries earlier in the season to Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki and Stephen Welsh, the 23-year-old struggled for regular minutes and more recently failed to make match day squads.

Meanwhile, Celtic academy star Mackenzie Carse is set for a loan move to the Scottish Championship.

The 19-year-old midfielder is reportedly set to join Queen's Park on loan until the end of the season.

Football Scotland claim the teenager will join up with new Spiders boss Callum Davidson and his squad after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.

Carse has made 18 appearances in the Lowland League this term for Celtic B. He's scored seven goals from midfield. He has played for Celtic since he was 13.

It's believed Celtic want one of their top academy prospects to be playing at a higher level at this stage of his development, and so Queen's Park has been trusted with him until the end of the campaign.

Queen's Park are desperately looking to bolster their squad this month after a difficult first half of the season. 

They currently sit eighth in the Championship, still very much in relegation trouble. Their ambitions at the start of the season were to make a promotion push, and those play-off dreams appear to be dwindling.
