We have been hurtling towards this over the past few days and it appears increasingly inevitable Jota will be a PERMANENT Celtic player within the week according to Scottish journalist Scott Burns.
Reports have been leaking from server camps over the past 48 hours. CeltsAreHere were told by a credible source Benfica had no plans for their winger and would allow Jota to complete his Celtic move as long as the club got the first option deal pre-negotiated last season.
Celtic haven’t been the best at holding onto top loan players over the years. The last major deal the club managed was Edouard from PSG after a successful year on loan. Guys like Forster, Moi and Paddy Roberts have all come and gone from their loan deals – all guys the fans wanted to stay at the time.
We can’t wait to see it be confirmed!
