CELTIC are poised to boot out a move from Atletico Madrid for Matt O’Riley.
The champions have been informed of the interest from the Spanish outfit for their in-form midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
It is understood the initial offer is a loan plus an obligation to buy the 23-year-old playmaker who cost the Hoops a bargain £1.5million when he arrived from English third-tier club MK Dons two years ago.

The La Liga aces are likely to receive the same answer as Inter Milan who made a similar offer that was kicked into touch, as CQN reported last month.
High-flying Girona have also been linked with the stylish middle-of-the-park performer who has notched 10 goals this season.
