Celtic are expected to make Jota’s loan move from Benfica permanent in the summer, Sky Sports report.
The Lowdown: Impressive Parkhead loan
He has been a key performer for the Hoops in what has been an impressive season, with a domestic treble still on the cards.
The Latest: Sky Sports claim
Sky Sports shared a story late on Tuesday evening, looking at 50 players who could be involved in transfers this summer.
One of those was Jota, with the report addressing the player’s long-term future. They said that Celtic are expected to sign Jota on a permanent basis, once again reporting a £6.5m fee.
The Verdict: Good news…
Jota has been a revelation at Parkhead, so it seems to be a no brainer to make his move permanent. No player has registered more assists than the Portuguese attacker, with Jota also high in the rankings when it comes to crosses completed and average match rating. [WhoScored]
He would become Celtic’s eighth most expensive signing of all time, should a £6.5m deal go through, but he has shown this season what he will bring to the club, and you’d expect he’ll only get better due to being just 23 years of age.
