CELTIC are closing in on an extended loan deal for Australian World Cup wonderkid Daniel Arzani.
The 19-year-old winger, who made three substitute appearances in Russia, is poised to seal his permanent move from Melbourne City to Manchester City.
Arzani flew to the UK after the Aussies were eliminated from the Finals to discuss his future with the Etihad outfit.
With details sorted, Pep Guardiola is prepared to allow the teenager to go out on a two-year temporary transfer.
The Hoops have had similar deals with City in the past with the likes of Jason Denayer, John Guidetti and Patrick Roberts.
Roma and PSV Eindhoven are monitoring developments, but it is more likely Arzani will team up with his international colleague Tom Rogic in the east end of Glasgow.
