Celtic are closing in on the signing of Manchester City midfielder Olivier Ntcham for £4.5m.
The 21-year-old has been in Glasgow for talks over the weekend and is believed to be close to finalising a deal.
The France Under-21 international has been on loan at Genoa for the past two seasons, where he made 37 appearances for the Serie A team.
Ntcham joined Manchester City from Le Havre at the age of 16 and has never actually played for the senior side.
Meanwhile, Celtic skipper Scott Brown is seeing a specialist over an Achilles problem but he is confident he will be passed fit to face Linfield on Friday.
The Scotland midfielder limped off just half an hour into Saturday’s 9-0 friendly rout of Shamrock Rovers after tweaking the tendon.
But he expects to face Northern Irish champions Linfield in Friday’s opening Champions League qualifier at Windsor Park after receiving treatment.
