Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that his club are nearing a loan deal for Australia teenager Daniel Arzani.

Arzani, who represented his country at the 2018 World Cup, is due to join Manchester City from Melbourne City before being sent on loan to Celtic for the 2018-19 campaign.

Rodgers has branded the 19-year-old "an exciting young talent", and is looking forward to welcoming the versatile attacker to Scotland.

"He is, I believe, finalising his deal with Manchester City and in talks with ourselves to come in, as a possibility," Rodgers told reporters. "He is another exciting young talent and we will see if we can get that organised in the next few days.

"It is not going to be [before] midweek. He has just flown in, he hasn't trained. He has obviously been at the World Cup so he will need to be in for a couple of weeks before he gets up to speed."

Arzani has scored twice in 26 first-team appearances for Melbourne City.
