It may seem like this is all happening very quickly but Celtic have been quiet and shrewd during negotiations with FC Krasnodar.
While the media was throwing out names like Henry Lansbury, Celtic went about negotiating a deal with the Russian side for the 19-year-olds signature and have successfully done so.
The player as at Celtic Park right now and all that remains is his medical and work permit, two things we’re certain shouldn’t stand in the way of the deal going through.
With a fee of around 3.5million Euros, Celtic are making a big statement of how they plan to back Brendan Rodgers and show their willingness to strengthen from an already strong position. Rodgers brought the Champions League money to Celtic Park and it’s only fair his team benefits from the bounty.
Expect the Eboue deal to be finalised as early as today.
