Wolverhampton Wanderers' Scottish international striker, Kenny Miller, was in Glasgow yesterday to discuss a move to Celtic but his agent played down suggestions of an imminent move. "There is no pre-contract in place yet with any club," said David Baldwin. "Kenny is looking at things and we are considering his options."

The 26-year-old's contract at Wolves is due to expire at the end of the season and he has rejected offers of a new deal.

One option is to sign a pre-contract agreement with Celtic to move in the summer. The other is to move now, with Celtic paying a fee. Wolves said that no transfer was imminent.

Miller played for Hibernian and Rangers before moving to Molineux in 2001. Rangers and Birmingham were reportedly interested in signing him from Wolves.

Celtic have already signed defender Mark Wilson from Dundee United this week, and agreed a fee with Debrecen for the Hungarian winger, Peter Halmosi.

After signing Wilson, Gordon Strachan, Celtic's manager, had said: "We have at least another couple of players in position for the summer," fuelling speculation that Hibs' Gary Caldwell and Miller were the players in question. But he also added he was "a wee bit light on strikers".
