According to reports this afternoon Celtic are closing in on the signing of Jonathan Afolabi – a winger who has just been released by Southampton this summer

The Herald are reporting Jonathan is set to be confirmed as a Celtic player in a deal which would have taken us all by surprise if it goes through.

The player has had interest from Russia, Spain in England but it looks like he has decided Celtic is his next destination.

The 19-year-old forward left the English Premier League side after being told he was surplus to requirements, and Celtic have beat a host of English clubs, Russia's Lokomotiv Moscow and Spanish side Real Valladolid to his signature.

Afolabi represented Ireland at the under-19 European Championships this summer and is also eligible to play for Nigeria.

Afolabi made 74 appearances for Southampton at youth level for the club, scoring 16 goals and providing eight assists.

He has been capped seven times for Ireland's under-19s, scoring twice.The deal is expected to be announced before Celtic's fixture against Dunfermline this afternoon.
