Ismaila Soro has reportedly agreed a deal in principle to sign for Celtic this month.

The Bnei Yehuda midfielder has been tracked by the Hoops since last summer and is closing in on a move, finally.

A powerhouse of a player, 21-year-old Soro still has his whole career ahead of him - an aspect clearly on Celtic's side with the future in mind. The midfield man is a robust, strong player who does the simple things in the middle of the park with aplomb.

He can also pick a pass, as his highlight reel suggests and he's willing to stick a boot in which is also an advantageous skill in the rough and tumble of Scotland's Premiership.

Soro has played 22 times this season in all competitions for his club and has won 53.5 percent of his duels. He has also won 54.5 percent of aerial battles. But it's his passing success rate - at 85.8 percent - which is arguably his best attribute.

Here is some footage showing the best of Ismaila Soro.
