Celtic will not be offering a contract to Honduras centre-half Osman Chavez.

Chavez, who has 25 international caps, is presently contracted to Platense in his homeland.

He is seeking a move after a year on loan to Motagua and was recently also due to have a trial with English Premier League outfit Tottenham.

Celtic manager Tony Mowbray has been critical of some of side's defending during a lacklustre start to the season.

Chavez had come highly recommended by countryman Wilson Palacios, who has impressed in England's top flight with Birmingham, Wigan and Spurs.
