The midfielder will sign a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Midfielder Ismaila Soro has completed a medical ahead of his proposed move to Celtic, the Scottish champions have announced.

Terms have already been agreed with Soro’s current club in Israel, Bnei Yehuda, for a four-and-a-half-year deal for the 21-year-old Ivorian.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon revealed on Tuesday that Soro was undergoing a medical in Israel as he waits for a visa to be sorted to confirm his move.

Soro began his career with FC Saxan in Moldova before joining FC Gomel in Belarus in 2017 and subsequently making the switch to Tel Aviv-based Bnei Yehuda the following year.

Celtic earlier confirmed defender Jack Hendry had completed a loan switch to Melbourne City.

The 24-year-old centre-back has only made one appearance this season, in the Betfred Cup.

Hendry has moved to Australia for the rest of the season.
