Celtic fans have been desperate to see the club sign Jota up on a permanent basis but there’s been no indication that will come this month.
There’s been a lot of reports of talks between the two clubs but at the moment it’s all a bit up in the air.
Celtic have an option to buy the winger, but they must match the clause in full and then Jota must agree to sign for the Hoops.
There’s a lot of time between now and the end of the season. Hopefully, the player will feel the love from the Celtic fans and want to stay.
