Celtic are reportedly yet to reach an agreement with Bnei Yehuda over a move for Ismaila Soro.

That’s according to Sky Sports, who have been informed by sources close to the midfielder that “an agreement is yet to be reached between the two clubs.”

Earlier this week, Bnei Yehuda manager Elisha Levy was quoted in the Daily Record as saying a deal with Celtic was “closed in principle” and he expected the midfielder to leave “in the near future.”

READ CELTIC VERDICT

News that Celtic are yet to reach an agreement with Bnei Yehuda has certainly come as a surprise to us following Levy’s comments, with the manager leading us to think a deal was close.

And with Patryk Klimala’s deal taking a worryingly long time to be confirmed, after the Daily Record revealed the striker was set for a medical with the club on Monday, this update on Soro is hugely frustrating in our opinion. 

Celtic are just days away from returning to domestic action and are still yet to make a signing.

The Hoops should have been kicked into gear following the defeat to Rangers prior to the winter break, and ensured that at least one early signing was made as a statement of intent.

However the deal for Soro looks to be nowhere near completion and Klimala is still unannounced, leaving us confused and frustrated as to what Celtic’s plan for this month is.

Are your surprised to see that an agreement for Soro has not yet been reached?
