Neil Lennon has confirmed that Celtic has a deal in place to sign Ismaila Soro.
A number of issues have been flagged up this week over the Bnei Yehuda midfielder with conflicting reports coming out of Israel.
It seems that the two clubs have agreed on a fee around the £2m mark with terms agreed to bring the Ivorian to Scotland.
Signing the deal off at the Israeli end however seems to have become problematic with various agents appearing to want a commission with two former clubs also involved.
Neil Lennon says a deal has been agreed for Ismaila Soro, they just need to finalise the paperwork.
He says they’re ‘working on a few other things’.

Soro will undergo a Celtic medical and needs a work permit before the DONE DEAL stamp can be looked out.
Earlier in the week Celtic completed the £3.5m signing of Patryk Klimala from Polish side Jagiellonia with the striker in line to feature at some stage in tomorrow’s Scottish Cup tie against Partick Thistle.
