Sky Sports is reporting that Celtic has turned down a bid from Chelsea for the services of goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

The 34-year-old Gordon has been with Celtic since 2014, when he left Sunderland for his native Scotland.

Chelsea seems to be looking for someone who eases their fears regarding the potential (if not probable) sale of Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth.

Oddly enough, Begovic would unseat another former Celtic goalkeeper in Artur Boruc.

The Blues currently have Portuguese international Eduardo as a No. 3. Any signing could be in the catbird seat given the constant rumors of interest in Thibaut Courtois.
