Matt O’Riley has passed his Celtic medical but according to Anthony Joseph full details of his move from MK Dons has still to be worked out.
Add-ons seem to be more and more significant in transfer negotiations will a chunk of any future fee highly important to the selling club.
Celtic appear to have got a 10% cut on the £60m profit that Southampton made from buying and selling Virgil van Dijk with that sort of figure the baseline.
There are a variety of payments that MK Dons could ask for including trophy wins for Celtic while a bonus if they reach the group stage of the Champions League could prove lucrative.
UPDATE: Matt O’Riley passed his medical and is in Glasgow to complete his move to Celtic from MK Dons today.
Celtic triggered a release clause to get him for £1.5m, but we understand some add-ons have also been included in the deal. https://t.co/3Po9cO9p1d

Sky Sports report:
Celtic triggered a release clause by offering £1.5m for the player and it’s believed some add-ons are included in the deal.
It does seem that O’Riley is close to becoming Celtic’s fifth signing of the window with the stamp of Ange Postecoglou increasing on the squad.
A year ago Fulham sold O’Riley to MK Dons with the London side likely to be due a cut of whatever fee they pick up from Celtic.
