According to reports this afternoon Celtic are closing in on the signing of Jonathan Afolabi – a winger who has just been released by Southampton this summer

The Herald are reporting Jonathan is set to be confirmed as a Celtic player in a deal which would have taken us all by surprise if it goes through.

The player has had interest from Russia, Spain in England but it looks like he has decided Celtic is his next destination.

Celtic have been chasing new players all summer with many thinking the defence still needs reinforcements.

Jonathan can play up front and on the right side of midfield.

He has also represented Ireland under 19s and is still eligible to play for the Republic or Nigeria.

Is this a sign Celtic are set to pick up their transfer business and get deals over the line before the window closes at the start of September.
