TOM ROGIC believes Celtic are landing a top prospect when his Australian World Cup team-mate Daniel Arzani arrives on his expected two-year loan deal.

The 19-year-old winger is likely to arrive at the Hoops within 72 hours once the details are finalised with Manchester City who have just signed him from Melbourne City.

Rogic said: “He’s a good kid and, although he’s young, he’s definitely a talent.

“As an attacking player, he will excite the fans and I know the clubs are working hard to get him here.

“It would be nice to have another Australian about the place. As I said, he has got bags of potential. If we can get him here, it will be a great learning experience for him.

“He is going to come from playing in the A league where you have 27 games and he is going to come here where we have 60-plus games and are fighting in four competitions and playing in front of 60,000 every week, so it will be a great challenge for him.

“Daniel will need a bit of time, but his future is bright and I’ll be happy to take him under my wing.

“As we saw at the World Cup, he was a bright spark for Australia and as a country we need more bright young players playing for big clubs in Europe, playing for teams in competitions in Europe. It is a good step for him.

“He gave me a call and asked me what I thought. I said I had just signed a five-year contract so it speaks for itself.

“I told him what I think of the club and that is has been a fantastic place for me to develop and progress and play my football. Hopefully, that can be the same for him.”
