JOTA's potential permanent move to Celtic has been given the blessing of AC Milan star Rafael Leao.

The 22-year-old Portuguese international knows Jota from their time in the U21s national set-up.

Jota has been an outstanding capture by Ange Postecoglou since his joining on loan in the summer from Benfica.

The wide attacker has eight goals so far, as well as seven assists to his name. 

It has been widely reported that Celtic will look to make the switch a permanent one next summer, with a fee of around £6.5million expected to be paid.

And that seems to have pleased Jota's international team-mate Leao.

Taking to social media, Leao shared a tweet that reports Jota could complete a permanent switch at the end of this season.

He quoted the messaged with a series of emojis, including two smiley faces.

Leao has also enjoyed a fruitful season to date, scoring five times in 15 outings for the Italian giants.
