Celtic won’t be signing Douglas Luiz or Oleksandr Zinchenko on loan from Manchester City.

Brendan Rodgers was at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to watch City beat Huddersfield 6-1 prompting speculation that more business could be done between the clubs.

Last week Celtic took Daniel Arzani on loan- following in the footsteps of John Guidetti, Jason Denayer, Patrick Roberts, Olivier Ntcham and Dedryck Boyata who have all ventured up the M74.

Central defender Luiz is likely to be joining Benfica on loan with the young Brazilian able to get a work permit to play to play in Portugal.

City have still to decide on where Zinchenko will play his football but have ruled out sending him to play in the SPFL.

Real Betis are keen on signing the 21-year-old midfielder who turned down a £16m deadline day move to Wolves.

Celtic are confident of making two signings before the transfer window closes Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna expected to join the hoops despite currently being out injured.
