Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster is finally closing in on a move to Southampton after a fee of in the region of £10m was agreed between the two clubs.
The Hoops had rejected an earlier approach for the England international but the deal appears set to be completed over the weekend subject to the usual medical.
Forster has already agreed personal terms having originally joined Celtic from Newcastle United for £2m in July 2012 and following a couple of successful loan spells. His former club would be entitled to 25% of any transfer fee.
He has spent the past four seasons at Parkhead and impressed sufficiently for his recent inclusion in the England squad at this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
