Former Celtic midfielder Neil Lennon has revealed he almost signed for Wycombe Wanderers this week.
Lennon was almost tempted by what Wycombe had to offer
The 35-year-old left Celtic after seven successful seasons and agreed to meet Wycombe officials as he ponders offers from several clubs.
Lennon, a former team-mate of Wycombe boss Paul Lambert, said: "Their offer put me in a real dilemma.
"I was impressed by what they had to say and almost joined them, but it took a lot of soul-searching to say 'no'."
Wycombe managing director Steve Hayes said: "I know how highly Paul rates Neil, both as a player and as a man, so I thought 'why not?' Let's see if he's interested.
"We did everything we possibly could to sign him, but the fact we're a League Two club went against us.
"Regrettably, that's the one thing we can't change overnight but it makes us more determined than ever to win promotion next season."
Lennon's agent Martin Reilly added: "Neil's been offered a contract by a top Premiership club and several from the Championship and other divisions.
"Steve Hayes put up a very convincing case and at one point I thought Neil was going to say 'yes', but Neil is still a very talented player and wants to test himself at the highest level he can."
