    They are potentially trying to force our hand by coming out with those comments or trying to create more interest and consequently a bidding war.

    I think the fee is in the region of £2-3m which they’ll be desperate to cash in on.

    The manager said: "Ismailia Soro's transfer deal to Celtic has been closed in principle and he is expected to leave in the near future.”

    Or we could have agreed a fee with the club, which is why he's saying it's done in principal, but we are still waiting for the player to agree personal terms, or decide if he wants to move to Scotland.

    Not really watched anything on him, someone says from clips not the biggest but seems busy, tough and Kante type, which would be good.

    Elhamed deal was agreed a week before he got here. Just because he hasn’t popped up at Glasgow airport people are assuming the deal is not happening etc. Celtic could be waiting on the work permit, works visa getting it upfront rather than waiting on it like elhamed

    CELTIC are closing in on a deal for Ismaila Soro to join Polish ace Patryk Klimala at Parkhead.

    Bnei Yehuda boss Elisha Levy claims the 21-year-old midfielder’s £2million move to the Premiership champions has been agreed.

    Hoops chiefs have yet to confirm when Soro will fly in from Tel Aviv, as they try to piece together a financial package.

    Striker Klimala was finalising his medical on Monday night after visiting Celtic Park, and confessed he’s ‘excited’ at his £3.5m switch from Jagiellonia Bialystok.

    SunSport first revealed the Hoops interest in Ivory Coast ace Soro back on December 2.

    Levy said: “Ismaila’s transfer deal to Celtic has been closed in principle and he is expected to leave in the near future

    When I took this job I knew he was going, so this isn’t a surprise to me. It just means we will have to look for reinforcements in his position.

    “Of course it will be difficult because Soro is an excellent player.

    He was very committed against Hapoel and professional. He will clearly be a big loss to the team and it will be up to me to find a good replacement for him.”

    Levy believes Soro made his last appearance for Yehuda in the 2-1 defeat to Hapoel Tel Aviv on Sunday.

    Fans protested about owner Barak Obramov’s plans to sell Soro.

    Can't believe we're getting the next Kante and Lewandowski in the one window. I'm sure they'll slot in perfectly alongside Jonny "the Irish Maradona" Hayes.

    This guy has been brought in to add some dig in midfield because Broony cant do it all on his own. Although that was the thinking behind signing Eboue Kouassi who really needs to get to * now. Enough is enough, just * off and get off our wage bill.

    I suspect the delay with Soro is the work permit application. Should be a done deal in next day or so. Announce both Klimala and Soro together.

    Looks like a great wee player... Hopefully, if the transfer goes through, he gets a game... Unlike most of the African prospects we buy...

    He looks absolutely superb. Can get stuck in,can drive forward,dribble,eye for a pass and looks to have a lot if compisure for his age. If we pull this off it will be a great deal.

    I hope so, although we could buy the best defensive midfielder in the world and broony would still get a game ahead of him... Not slating the captain or the manager, but it would be nice if we changed it up a bit to accommodate both... I know this would meaning dropping a christie/mcgregor/forrest though...

    Tough one. Love to see new exciting players coming here, but if they're going to be first picks, who do we drop?
