Celtic are reportedly looking to sign Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny on loan for the rest of the season.

According to reports from Sky Sports, the 23-year-old right-back is set to sign for the Scottish giants on a temporary deal.

The Bhoys are looking to sign a full-back this month. Neil Lennon is keen to fill the void left by Jeremie Frimpong who was sold to Bayer Leverkusen last week.

Kenny, who impressed heavily last season on loan at Schalke, has struggled for badly games at Goodison Park and has failed to impress Carlo Ancelotti.

He has made only four Premier League appearances this season, clocking just 79 minutes of action.

He was even overlooked when Seamus Coleman was injured. Ancelotti used the likes of Mason Holgate as a makeshift full-back instead of Kenny, which suggests he is not in the Italian’s long-term plans.

Kenny needs to play regularly, and a move to Celtic Park would not be a bad option. He has Premier League experience and he would be a handy addition for Neil Lennon’s struggling side.

He was linked with a move to Burnley earlier this month but the Toffees were unable to agree a permanent deal for him.

Celtic fans are frustrated with the football being played under Lennon this season, and many feel Kenny will be wasted at Parkhead.

Many Everton fans like the idea that fringe players are being shipped away, but they are also hoping to see a few players coming in before Monday’s deadline.

Here are some of the selected tweets:
