Celtic just need to agree on personal terms with right-back Aurelio Buta, according to The Daily Record’s Scott Burns.
The Lowdown: Buta profiled
Buta is 24 years of age and has been of interest to Celtic for a number of weeks now.
The Latest: £3m deal agreed
According to Burns’ report late on Tuesday evening, Buta is next on Celtic’s transfer spree. A £3m deal has been agreed between Celtic and Royal Antwerp, who are still in talks over a transfer.
Burns adds that all is left is for the full-back to agree on personal terms ahead of a move to Glasgow.
This all goes against the claims of the media in Belgium, who suggest a deal is not as advanced as Burns believes.
Is Buta the right man for Celtic at right-back?
The Verdict: McKay closing in on another big-money move
Dominic McKay has helped Celtic spend relatively big during his first summer as CEO, and it seems as if Buta could be his fourth addition at £3m or over after Liel Abada, Carl Starfelt and Kyogo Furuhashi.
A new right-back is wanted by Ange Postecoglou, and you’d hope Celtic would be willing to offer Buta, who has experience in the Europa League, something Ralston doesn’t, a respectable Parkhead salary.
