Celtic: Hoops allegedly reach agreement for Jota -Celtic

Celtic have reached an agreement with Benfica for the transfer of winger Filipe Jota, according to Portuguese outlet Record, cited by HITC.

The Lowdown: Jota profiled

Jota is 22 years of age and is primarily a left-winger but can also turn out on the right when required.

A Portugal Under-21 international, Jota is thought to be on £7,100-a-week and spent last season on loan at Spanish side Real Valladolid, making 18 appearances.

He’s won two major honours with Benfica and was the top scorer at the 2018 Under-19 European Championships.

The Latest: Agreement reached

According to Record, translated by HITC, a loan agreement has been reached between Celtic and Benfica for Jota.

The report claims that there will be a clause included where the Hoops can make the move permanent during the temporary move.

The Verdict: Ange gets what he was after

Ange Postecoglou was after a winger at the beginning of the month, and it seems as if he’ll be getting just that in a transfer involving Jota.

Dominic McKay also appears to have worked a clever clause in where it could be made permanent, which could be a shrewd move if Jota impresses in Scotland, although a specific fee isn’t included in the recent report.

Jota could well join Georgios Giakoumakis in sealing late moves to Celtic Park, with the attacker expected to undergo a medical in France on Sunday.
