Matt O’Riley has been pictured arriving at Celtic Park for what is likely to be the final stages of his transfer to Celtic. The midfielder was with representatives of CAA Base, his agency.
The 21-year-old moved to MK Dons a year ago but with a £1.5m get out clause in his deal it looks like he is about to move on from the League One side.
Last week Riley McGree quickly switched from Celtic to joining Middlesbrough but the move for O’Riley appears much more substantial with Sky Sports reporting that the midfielder has passed his medical.

With Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi signed up the day before the transfer window officially opened there is a very different dynamic to Celtic’s business in the post-Lawwell era.
O’Riley has been capped by England at u-16 and u-18 level but is believed to be interesting Norway and Denmark for full international representation.
His immediate task will be to get into the Celtic side with Ange Postecoglou now able to field three different three-man midfields with Ismaila Soro and James McCarthy getting pushed down the ladder.
