Celtic are reported to be confident of agreeing a deal with Legia Warsaw to bring Josip Juranovic to Scotland.
That was the word last night from Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports who seems to have attached himself to this proposed transfer.
Juranovic moved to Legia last summer from Hadjuk Split last summer for £1.53m with double that fee required to release the Croatian international from his contract.

After being strongly linked with Aurelio Buta of Royal Antwerp it seems that Celtic’s focus for a right-back switched to Yan Couto of Manchester City or Juranovic.
The Manchester City teenager was reported to have been given the red-carpet treatment for Celtic’s Europa League tie against Jablonec but that hasn’t been followed up by a loan deal.
At 26 Juranovic fits in with the age profile of Ange Postecoglou’s signings targets with the emphasis being on ready-to-go prospects rather than projects that could be sold to Southampton after a few seasons with Celtic.
