Celtic are set to confirm the signing of winger Jota on a permanent deal by the end of this week, according to reports in the player’s homeland.
The Lowdown: Jota a key man for Hoops
The Portuguese maestro was one of the Hoops’ most prominent attacking players last season, hitting the ground running after joining on loan from Benfica.
Celtic have reportedly been working on a permanent move for some time and it appears to be getting closer to being completed by the day.
The Latest: Permanent move close
Celtic have triggered the 23-year-old’s release clause and it is now just a case of agreeing some personal terms.
The Verdict: Big piece of business
Signing Jota on a permanent basis was of the utmost importance for Ange Postecoglou this summer, with the attacker such a potent player for Celtic in 2021/22.
Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?
Had they failed to get their man it would have felt like a crushing blow, but instead, his arrival will feel as important as any new face that comes in before the start of next season.
Jota has been hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Postecoglou himself, which shows how much he admires him, and he could become a future superstar at Parkhead.
