Mikael Lustig is said to have already taken part in a medical and discussed terms with Gent over a move to Belgium this summer, however, at this moment in time, the reports from Voetball News claim the player has not yet put pen to paper on a deal even though everything is in order.
The publication says the medical has been passed and Lustig has terms in front of them yet there has been no confirmation of a deal being signed.
Is the defender hoping for a deal elsewhere and keeping his options open for a small period of time.
On Monday, Scott Brown revealed Lustig and the club were still in dialogue over a deal with Neil Lennon keen to keep the Swede at Celtic Park for a little while yet.
It would be some turnaround if the club and defender managed to come together for a deal.
