Celtic: Jota signing set to be confirmed this week, say reports in Portugal -Celtic News

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.

Jota registered 15 goal involvements in just 21 Scottish Premiership starts – seven goals and eight assists – with his pace and trickery out wide proving to be a nightmare for opponents.

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

According to Record [via Sport Witness], a deal could be struck ‘by the end of the week’, as the Hoops secure the long-term services of a rising star in Jota.

Celtic have triggered the 23-year-old’s release clause and it is now just a case of agreeing some personal terms.
