Report: Celtic have agreed deal for midfielder Ismaila Soro, he will now fly to Glasgow

Celtic are reportedly on the verge of signing midfielder Ismaila Soro from Israeli top-flight club Bnei Yehuda.

According to Sport1, the Bhoys have agreed a £2.1million deal with Bnei Yehuda’s board for him.

It is understood that the 21-year-old is expected to join the Bhoys imminently and he will now travel to Glasgow to complete a move.

 

The report explains that he will pen a four-and-a-half year contract at Parkhead and make the switch to the Scottish giants in the January transfer window.

Neil Lennon’s team look set to wrap up a deal for Soro and they will hope that he can make an immediate impact in their midfield.

TBR’s View:

Celtic need some fresh faces to arrive in January to breathe new life into their season, as they are now in a real scrap with Old Firm rivals Rangers for the title and also have the Europa League knockouts ahead of them.

Soro is a defensive midfielder that has been an ever-present in Bnei Yehuda’s team this season and did feature in Europa League qualifying for him.

The Ivory Coast youngster is set to make a big step up with a move to Celtic and it will be intriguing to see if he’s ready to compete for a first-team spot immediately.
