Celtic have agreed an €8 million deal with Toulouse for the signing of Christopher Jullien.

That’s according to L’Equipe, via Get French Football News, who believe the move is close to being completed.

The 26-year-old centre-back was a key figure for Toulouse last season, as they finished 16th in Ligue 1.

He featured in 34 of their 38 league games, scoring one goal along the way.

Although “finer details still need to be hashed out” between Celtic and Toulouse, Jullien looks set to become an exciting summer purchase for the Hoops.

The lure of playing Champions League football is believed to have played a part in the defender’s decision, given the competition’s magnitude.

A long-term deal has been agreed and his medical has been pencilled in for Thursday at some point.

Jullien is yet to be capped by France at senior level, but he made two appearances for the U20s back in 2013.
