The Lowdown: Hart links
The Hoops were first linked with a move for the 34-year-old on Wednesday by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
He claimed that Celtic opened talks with Spurs over a move for Hart and added on Thursday that an agreement was close.
Konur previously stated that Celtic didn’t want to pay Tottenham for the Englishman, and he feels a move is now gathering pace.

Konur said the Hoops are ‘about to complete’ a transfer, which would make him Celtic’s sixth summer signing.
“Celtic are about to complete the Joe Hart transfer. Minor details are being discussed between Tottenham and Celtic.”
