Celtic’s swoop for free agent Bosun Lawal is ‘done’, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Lawal spotted at Parkhead
The 18-year-old Irish midfielder was actually spotted at Parkhead on Wednesday in what has been a busy few days for the Hoops on the transfer front.
The Latest: Lawal deal ‘done’
According to Football Insider, who were informed by a Celtic source, the relative paperwork has been completed and a move for Lawal is ‘done’.
The Hoops are yet to officially announce a transfer but a move is wrapped up with a medical completed before he made the journey to Glasgow.
Celtic will pay Watford a six-figure compensation fee despite Lawal being a free agent, due to development costs.
The Verdict: Building for the long-term
The oldest of those five mentioned is just 21 years of age, so it appears as if the Hoops are building for the future.
Troy Deeney hailed Lawal just two months ago, labelling his ability to go past a man as ‘effortless’. The forward tipped the midfielder to go on and have a successful career, and hopefully, he’ll hit his prime in Glasgow with Celtic.
