Celtic have given permission to John Hartson's agent to speak to other clubs regarding a possible transfer John.
He has been linked with moves to Pompey and West Brom. Although he may not leave!
'There has been a lot of media coverage and speculation with regards to John's situation at Celtic, but at the moment, John is not certain to leave the club,' confirmed Barnett in a statement on the club's official website.
'I was given permission several months ago by Celtic to speak to other clubs in relation to John. This has been done and certain clubs have expressed an interest to Celtic.'
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell added: 'We can confirm that a number of months ago, for various reasons, Jonathan Barnett was given permission to speak to other football clubs on John's behalf.
'This is something which Jonathan did and there has been a degree of interest.
'Over a number of years, John Hartson has been a great servant to Celtic and has made a fantastic contribution to the club.'
Hartson is thought to be talking to Portsmouth next Thursday for the third time with talks at an advanced stage.
In other news; Di Canio is rumoured to be coming in as Harry`s number two although this seems unlikely. (You will know who first here.)
