Josip Juranovic is reported to have said good-bye to his Legia Warsaw team-mates after Thursday’s Europa League draw away to Slavia Prague.
The defender is believed to have flown to Scotland rather than Poland with a medical to overcome before he puts pen to paper on a four year contract.
David Turnbull and Rivaldo Coetzee have both failed Celtic medicals in recent times with vastly different outcomes.
There was nothing coming out of Celtic yesterday about a likely deal but that leaves the door open for an announcement at today’s match against St Mirren.
Looking at the next stage of Juranovic’s career, Croatian website Slobodna Dalmacija reports Legia coach Czes?aw Michniewicz saying:
Jura said goodbye on the lawn, then said goodbye in the locker room, and the team said goodbye to him. Forgive in great style. We are preparing for the fact that he will not be in return.
Juranovic did pick up a slight knock in the warm up to Thursday’s match but was able to play 90 minutes and notch a spectacular goal.
If the transfer is completed the Croatian is unlikely to make his Celtic debut until after the international break.
