Paperwork for Croatian central defender, Jozo Simunovic, 21, is being drawn up and will be submitted before the European and Scottish transfer windows close tonight. This has been the most tortuous signing since, well, since Celtic signed fellow Balkan Stefan Scepovic a year ago.
Simunovic was the first choice replacement for Virgil and I hear the coaching staff are delighted to get him.
The transfer is the most expensive in Scotland in 8 years and takes Celtic’s spend this window to over £8m.
We’ll go into detail on all of this tomorrow.
