Scotland Under-19 striker Denny Johnstone is ready to leave Celtic for Birmingham City.
It follows him impressing on trial after being recommended to the Midlands club by former Hoops coach Alan Thompson.
Dundee United had also been interested but withdrew from the race on learning they would be required to pay a tribunal-decided fee.
Thompson is the current senior professional development coach at St Andrews.
