JOTA’S permanent transfer to Celtic seems to be taking a little longer than expected, which has fans worrying.
But seeing him out and about in his Celtic gear has given some fans the confirmation that he’ll be playing his football in Glasgow next season.
Celtic has announced that one of their loan deals from last season has become permanent when they revealed that Carter-Vickers had penned a four-year deal on Friday night.
Celtic are yet to make an announcement regarding Jota’s future, but things could be about to change.
The Daily Record report that a deal is close to completion and a deal could be announced THIS WEEK. This suggests that there are no issues. The paper did claim the same thing last month.
The article also reveals that both clubs have been “cheerful” with how the loan has panned out.
Hopefully, a deal can be announced sooner rather than later, and fans can put their doubt to bed. It’ll also allow Celtic to focus on other targets, knowing they have their two big signings completed in the first week of the transfer market.
However, this deal does have a similar feeling. Over a year ago, Eddie Howe was supposed to sign on Monday, then it was the next week, then when the stock market opened.
After weeks of speculation about when he’d be announced, it turned out that an agreement couldn’t be reached as his backroom staff wouldn’t come to Celtic with him, and Celtic had to search for another manager. Hopefully, Celtic have learned from this, and a similar scenario won’t unfold.
