Crystal Palace keeper Julian Speroni could be set to make a sensational return to Scotland as the new Celtic No.1.

The 31 year-old ex-Dundee keeper would cost around just £1m from Palace who received an 11th hour reprieve from going into liquidation after the London club were taken over earlier this week.

According to a report in The Sun, 30 year-old Boruc, who has one year left to run on his contract has hinted to Celtic that he wonít sign a new deal.

If that is the case worried Parkhead chiefs would prefer to sell Boruc now rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Money from the Polish starís transfer, plus the freeing up of his £35,000 a week wages, would easily cover Speroniís demands should he decide to return to Scotland.

The remainder of the cash would then be added to Neil Lennonís war chest when, as expected, he takes over as the new Hoops gaffer.

Arsenal and Sevilla are both said to have kept tabs on Boruc and could make a £3m bid, with a move to the Emirates believed to be his preferred choice. Last month Lennonís assistant Johann Mjallby said he hoped the club would hold onto the keeper after it emerged Sevilla were tracking the Polish international.

Boruc signed for Celtic from Legia Warszaw in 2005 on a year long loan deal but quickly made the No. 1 spot his own and established himself as a fans favourite.

He has made over 200 appearances for the Hoops and in 2007 was nominated for the Scottish PFAís Player of the Year Award.

A series of outstanding displays for Celtic in Europe as well as at the 2006 World Cup saw his value rise to £8m but his form began to dip and his position as Poland No.1 come under threat, although he showed signs of being back to his best last season.

West Ham and Wolves are both said to be keen on securing Speroniís services, but it's thought he would jump at the chance to return to Scotland where he would challenge Lukasz Zaluska for the No.1 spot should the Holy Goalie leave.

Speroni became a cult figure at Dundee after signing for the club in 2001. He moved south to Crystal Palace for £500,000 in 2005.

I hope that it is Peroni who goes to Celtic and not the once-ponytailed goalkeeping legend that is Jules.

Could replace him with Foster's? Seriously though 1M they would have to offer far more than that. He wants to stay at CPFC on top of that.

Boruc will leave Celtic, Zaluska will take over. The Sun got that much right, the rest of the story is rubbish (fingers crossed)
Julian would be mad to move to Glasgow to be No. 2 Keeper aged 31.
He loves Palace, he is adored by the Fans, I have never read a bad word about him on the BBS.
I hope none of our players will be sold and 2010 will sort out a new contract next year. I want to see him play for us well into his 40's.

Not to mention the guys with no years left. As long as those starting their last year are spoken to and know what's happening I'd say Christmas is fine. They can't start making pre-contract deals until January.
