Celtic fans have been walking on egg shells with every rumour, sighting, pub crawl, kickabout or music festival being followed by Celts desperate for information on the intentions of Jota.
We now seem to be in the end game of the process with Jota finally in Glasgow, the rumours of him doing a medical today and a signature in the seasons new jersey today or tomorrow are ramping up.
Should Celtic conclude the signing, the people are going to get the fear as they prepare to offload players to pay the bills and are buying youth players and unwanted players for low ball figures.
As reported on Football Scotland.
Jota is in Glasgow as he closes in on a permanent deal at Celtic.
The Portuguese winger has been on the verge of completing his move from Benfica for weeks now. But Football Scotland understands the player is finally in the city as he gets ready to put pen to paper on a contract that will make him Ange Postecoglou’s newest signing. Fans have been growing somewhat restless with the delay of any updates for the attacker, 23, who enjoyed a successful loan spell last season at Parkhead.
It does now, however, seem to be coming to an end as the player is set to finally ink a deal believed to be a four-year contract. Celts are understood to be paying around £6.5million for his services following the two clubs agreeing a clause in last term’s loan agreement. The player scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists domestically for the club last season and fans have been itching to get him back in the door with Champions League football guaranteed this year.
