Real Madrid midfielder Thomas Gravesen is mulling over a move to Old Firm giants Celtic, according to the player's agent.

The Denmark international has become surplus to requirements with the Spanish giants following the return of manager Fabio Capello to El Santiago Bernabeu.

The former Hamburg and Everton player has been linked with several clubs across Europe, though Dutch giants Ajax ruled out any suggestions that they were interested in the Scandinavian talent this week.

Newcastle United boss Glenn Roeder has already expressed his interest in landing Gravesen, with the midfielder's agent John Sivebaek claiming only 'three or four' clubs are left in the running for his client.

"We are still in talks with these clubs, but hopefully something will be finalised in the next week, perhaps even sooner," Sivebaek told the Daily Record.

"Thomas is still warm on the idea of moving to Glasgow because it is such a big club.

"Of course, for most players, the idea of playing in the English Premiership is more interesting than the Scottish league, but Celtic will be in the Champions League this season and that's very attractive for Thomas.

"Real Madrid have told us they will look very positively at whatever offer they receive.

"I've heard a rumour the price they want is £2 million."
