Celtic are set to complete the loan signing of Daniel Arzani later today, it is being reported.

ESPN claims that a deal to take Arzani from Melbourne City to Manchester City is edging ever closer.

Once the Australian international has been confirmed as a Manchester City player, he will be free to join the Scottish champions on loan.

The youngster is reportedly poised to join Celtic on a two-year loan deal, as he becomes the latest player to be swooped up by the Premier League champions, as part of their affiliation with the Melbourne side.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has been very public in the Hoops’ pursuit of the Australian, all but confirming that he will be a Celtic player before the end of the summer.

Arzani is set to become Celtic’s second signing of the summer, following Odsonne Edouard, who joined on a permanent transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
