Neil Lennon has confirmed Celtic are close to signing Ismaila Soro.

The midfielder has been touted with a move to Parkhead for a number of weeks now and appears to have played his final game for Bnei Yehuda.

Ivorian Soro, 21, has been watched by Celtic on a number of occasions and Lennon revealed the club are hopeful of getting him in the door this week.

Lennon said: "I think a deal's been agreed. We're just waiting on the paperwork being done now, so hopefully that can be resolved over the next few days."

On the player's talents, the manager added: "He's a good player. He's strong and technically very good, quick across the ground and hungry. We've done a lot of work on him and Klimala. It's good to get some fresh faces in the building."
