Celtic are monitoring UK loan market for late transfer deals as Barkas, Ajeti and Bolingoli set to exit
IT’s shaping up to be a busy deadline at Celtic.
Star man Odsonne Edouard will seal a dream move to the Premier League with Crystal Palace securing a £ 15million deal.
Celts forward Ryan Christie remains stuck in talks with Burnley and Bournemouth over a move to England – the latter seen as the player’s preferred destination.
Focusing on the incoming players, Greece striker Giorgos Giakoumakis is set to finalize a £ 2.5million move to VVV-Venlo’s Hoops.
Last season’s Eredivisie top scorer is expected to sign a four-year contract, with Celtic also set to seal a one-season loan for young Portuguese Jota.
The Benfica winger underwent a medical exam on Monday with the Hoops ready to insert a call option into the deal.
SunSport may reveal that the club will also be monitoring the Premier League loan market as various players are expected to be available today.
Meanwhile, looking at the exit door again, there should be late loan interest from several Celtic players as well.
Flop keeper Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti and Boli Bolingoli are among those who could leave.
Dundee will also make every effort to sign Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths.

Dens Park boss James McPake has urged club chief John Nelms to strike a deal with the deadline.
SunSport revealed last week that the Dark Blues are desperate to land the former Scottish star.
Nelms is currently abroad, which complicated discussions. But McPake has made it clear that bringing in his close friend Griffiths would be a major blow.

Griffiths also has options at an Israeli club, but he has reservations about a move overseas.
He is eager to make a deal with former club Dundee and the Celts are keen to move him on.
But talks could enter the final window hours as Celtic seek to revamp their squad.
