With the news Bayo is heading to Toulouse on what looks to be a season long loan – Celtic appear to be FINALLY closing in on Albian Ajeti after a week of talks.
Celtic agreed a loan deal with an option to buy over a week ago for Ajeti but the player wanted to return to Switzerland and mull over his future.
Celtic have waited patiently but Neil Lennon has taken the bull by the horns and has spoken to the player and his reps personally over the past few days which seems to have convinced the striker to make the move.
Sky Sports Anthony Jospeh has been close to this story and has delivered this social media update
West Ham striker Albian Ajeti is close to agreeing terms with Celtic for a loan deal, with an option to buy.
Neil Lennon held further talks with the player’s agent last night.
Lennon’s intervention has convinced Ajeti to choose Celtic.
Could be done early next week.

Ajeti was prolific for his Basel which won him a move to West Ham, the frontman has been used sparingly by the London club who have no plans to use him next term.
The deal was never off, the player never turned Celtic down but just asked for time to decide. This could be a great signing for Celtic.
