    Exactly. Just checked our Experian report and we ain't even getting a Ratesetter loan. Cash is a must.

    It's his posture or something when he's striking a ball

    He is such an important player for us.
    Really think it would bring on his game if we were to play the same guy at LB, not chop and change.
    Give them a chance to build up an understanding.
    Right now, I would run with Boli. And Monty a decent option to bring on.

    The winger we've been missing for a while. Get him signed up permanently ASAP

    Unbelievable talent. He’s the quality of player we should be signing two of every year or so, be it loan or permanent. Good enough to go straight into the team and stick out like a sore thumb.

    Great that we have an option to buy, hopefully he settles in here and doesn't just shop window himself for a bigger league.

    His talent was obvious straight away..

    Seemed a perfect fit him coming to us for a fresh start in an attacking outfit..

    Don't know how anyone can be sceptical about paying the money right now..

    Sign him and a new lw for rotation and we'd be sorted there.

    Get some agile, dynamic CMs in as well, with perhaps, a new lb and Jan window would look fantastic.

    4 new players in Jan could really change the balance of the squad along with the permanent signing of Jota

    Worth mentioning that, on both Twitter and Reddit, Benfica fans are absolutely gutted they let him go to us on a LTB. They think it should have been a straight loan and there's players on the bench there that are worse than Jota.

    Think there's an active benfica fan on this board who can maybe back me up/call me out (I've got things wrong before :fear:) but his talent is clear, i'd be signing him the second the January window opens as interest will be high.

    @Luz1904 what's the reaction in Portugal to Jota's start to life at Celtic? (If any)

    Totally agree get him signed permanently on a long term deal as soon as possible. Much more to come from him as well I think.

    He’s a quality player. 6 mill is a no brainer, clearly.

    I'm pretty certain its all done when it's a loan to buy. Its like a contract extension, the club just need to activate it and pay the money so nobody can jump in and sign him. Like Jack hendry. Didn't that team loan to buy him and then sell him?

    Benfica fans are happy for him. Some say that he should not have a buy-clause, but personally I see it differently. He won't have a chance with Jorge Jesus so I hope Celtic triggers the buy-clause and he can have a great career. Otherwise he will be a bench player. And he is too talented to be a bench player forever.
