Celtic are in talks that could result in an outlay of £12.5m! 

Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers came in on loan at the end of the summer transfer window and have played in every match that they were available for. 

Options to buy were included in both loan deals with Celtic appearing happy with the contribution that both players are making. 

Just after 6pm tonight, Anthony Joseph of Sky Sports reported: 

Celtic have opened talks with Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur in their bid to sign Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers on permanent deals. 

The Scottish Premiership side intend to trigger the option-to-buy clauses for both players, who have impressed boss Ange Postecoglou. 

A fee of £6.5m was negotiated in principle with Benfica to sign Jota, who is currently back in Lisbon to have his injury assessed. 

An initial fee of £6m is in the agreement of Carter-Vickers’ loan, with one source telling Sky Sports News talks between Celtic and Spurs are based around the structure of any potential permanent deal. It’s understood there is no wriggle-room on the overall price for the United States defender. 

Although Jota and Carter-Vickers have made a big impression on Celtic combined fees of £12.5m and associated wages would be a massive commitment for the club to make. 

After over a decade without exceeding the £4.4m paid to Hibs for Scott Brown Celtic spent big on Odsonne Edouard and Chris Jullien. 

With around £40m on offer to the SPFL winners from playing in the Champions League it seems like Celtic are raising the stakes to increase their chances of winning the title.
