Celtic reportedly agree terms with Manchester City over the loan signing of midfielder Patrick Roberts.

Celtic have reportedly agreed to re-sign Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts on a third loan deal.

Since January 2016, Roberts has continued his development in Glasgow with the Scottish Premiership champions, with 17 goals being scored in 60 appearances in all competitions.

It had been claimed that Nice were strong contenders to secure the services of the 20-year-old for the upcoming campaign but according to the Daily Record, Celtic have won the race for the playmaker's signature.

The former Fulham prospect has spent pre-season trying to impress boss Pep Guardiola, but given City's spending spree this summer, the decision has been made for more game time to be gained elsewhere.

Roberts - who has made just four substitute outings for City - still has three years remaining on his contract at the Etihad Stadium.
