Celtic has been asked to complete a loan move for Everton right-back Jonjoe Kenny after apparently losing to Liverpool for Ben Davies

Manager Neil Lennon expressed hope that a deal can be reached with Preston defender Davies on Saturday for the 24-year-old’s Deepdale contract, which expires in the summer

However, widespread reports claim the English champions took a shock to sign the center-back before the Monday night deadline

Since Christopher Jullien is out for several months and Shane Duffy in their 2-1 home defeat to St Mirren looks vulnerable again on Saturday, Lennon wants to strengthen his central defense

The pressured Hoops boss is also looking for a right-back following Jeremie Frimpong’s move to Bayer Leverkusen last week, and Kenny has emerged as the main target

The 23-year-old has played 48 games for Everton and was on loan at Schalke on a regular basis last season

Aberdeen and Ross County both saw key strikers leave for England on Sunday, but Hibernian should stand firm given interest in their top scorer

County sold Ross Stewart to Sunderland while Sam Cosgrove came to Birmingham for a fee of about £ 2 million

But blues have so far failed in pursuing Kevin Nisbet, who stayed on the bench when Hibs beat Dundee United in Tannadice on Saturday

Hibs reportedly turned down a new £ 3mn offer for Nisbet on Sunday after Birmingham boss Aitor Karanka confirmed the former Raith and Dunfermline striker was a target

Hib’s head coach Jack Ross expressed confidence on Saturday that both Nisbet and Millwall target Ryan Porteous would still be with him when the window closes, but Stevie Mallan could be prepared for a move to Turkey

Aberdeen reportedly signed a loan deal for Scottish U21 striker Fraser Hornby after playing without a recognized center-forward in Saturday’s goalless draw against Livingston

The former Everton youth player has played three substitute games for Stade de Reims since joining Ligue 1 last summer

Rangers, who are still 23 points ahead of Celtic in the Scottish Premier League, are in no rush to expand their squad for next season with pre-contract deals for Aberdeen attacker Scott Wright and Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson / p>

George Edmundson could be on loan en route from Ibrox, with Derby linked to the center-back

Livingston manager David Martindale hopes to add to his roster late on Dundee United is not expected to do business while St Mirren wants to add another striker and left-back if possible

Kilmarnock boss Alex Dyer had been looking for another striker before coming after the home defeat to St Johnstone lost his job on Saturday

Hamilton hopes to expand his roster after several frustrations while St Johnstone, Ross County and Motherwell could also be busy
