Celtic expected to complete the signing Jota this week.

The Portuguese star’s agent is preparing for a final round of discussions to sign his £6.5m transfer from Benfica.

The winger was a key figure in Ange Postecoglou’s double win.

Celtic Signed Jota on loan from Benfica in the summer but with a buy option.

They have now exercised that right and have all but personally agreed terms that will make his move to Glasgow a permanent one.

Celtic are also close to a similar deal with defender Cameron Carter-Vickers.

He is on loan from Tottenham Hotspur but Celtic also have the option to buy him for £6m.

Record Sport earlier this week revealed that Carter-Vickers agreed terms with Celtic on a permanent move.

Now, between Celtic and Spurs left to complete an agreement before the term deadline.

It is expected that Celtic will sign both as Postecoglou has indicated that he considers both important figures.

Celtic have also been promoted by automatically entering the group stage of the Champions League.

Postecoglou has now left his recruitment team to work on options with a left-back, centre-back and another central striker on his wanted list.
