Ismaila Siri’s move to Celtic is being reportedly held up by a dispute between his current club and the player’s representatives according to SunSport.

The player has been linked with a move to Celtic for some time with the defensive midfielder apparently playing his final game for Bnei Yehuda on Wednesday.

However, it’s emerged that the dispute is holding up the deal and now the club have released a statement claiming the player could be in the squad next week if things aren’t sorted.

A statement from Bnei Yehuda said: “It’s impossible to know at the moment whether Ismaila Soro will be in the squad for our next game against Hapoel Kfar Saba on Monday or not.”

Bnei Yehuda have not been holding back in their use of the player considering a deal looks agreed in principle.

It was a surprise they risked the player and his potential fee to play him in a cup game this week.

If the dispute is correct then there’s very little Celtic can do at their end.

The dispute appears to be centred around his representatives owning a percentage of any transfer fee and the club are trying to negotiate it with his agents.

Nothing is ever simple!
