Ismaila Soro “could” undergo a medical with Celtic on Monday as his move to Parkhead edges closer, but one thing is still holding up the deal.

According to The Herald, Soro’s medical will happen in Israel if it does go ahead on Monday, after Celtic agreed a £2million fee with Bnei Yehuda for the midfielder. 

However the deal is still being delayed, with the report stating “a visa is thought to be holding up the move.”

While the deal for Soro does appear to be taking a while to get over the line as the midfielder awaits his visa, news of the 21-year-old looking set to undergo a medical is hugely positive.

The Hoops finalised Patryk Klimala’s deal early last week ahead of the return to domestic action, and if Soro can be signed before Celtic get back underway in the league, we feel that would represent excellent business.

However that looks unlikely in our view given how the Hoops travel to Kilmarnock on Wednesday.

But the main thing is that the deal does appear to be edging closer, slowly but surely, and we’re excited to see what Soro has to offer when he does eventually arrive. 

Do you think Celtic will complete the signing of Soro before Wednesday's clash with Killie?
