Greek Journalist: “Celtic Are Really Close To Signing Palma”

Celtic are on the verge of signing Honduran left winger Luis Palma from Greek side Aris.

Reports earlier today came out and stated that Celtic had an opening bid of £3.5m rejected for the player, but The Hoops quickly returned with a second bid of £44.3m which has been accepted.

Palma has apparently agreed a salary of around £10k per week at Celtic, reportedly turning down MILLIONS in extra wages from Saudi clubs in order to push through the move to Parkhead.

You can read my thoughts on that here: Champions 67 – News and opinions on everything Celtic FC related.

And just minutes ago, Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos has provided an update on the deal via his Twitter account.

He tweeted:

Celtic are really close to sign Luis Palma from Aris Thessaloniki. Agreement in principle between the clubs, €4,1m. plus some bonuses. Palma ‘s contract €650.000 per season, probably for a 4years contract

Very promising news as Palma looks a cracking player and has good goal-scoring stats.

He is also excellent at set-pieces, even scoring directly from a corner recently!

Celtic will hope to get this deal concluded over the weekend.

    Hopefully this signing will be a solution to a problem area within the squad.
    The million dollar question remains as to weather he will be ready for the Glasgow Derby and inclusion for a CL squad?
    With the fee involved, you would like to think so as very much required.
    So potentially a front 3 for CL of, Palma, meada, kyogo, Oh, Abada, Yang and Forrest with still Tilo and Mikey Johnston for SPFL.
    Is that a potentially stronger line up than last season with what we had on offer?
    Think it could be myself, certainly more options available, especially as I don’t buy into this project signings nonsense, as players able to play at SPFL standards are the minimum requirements needed for our club, and might have got the attacking options sorted out now by finalising the Palma deal?
    Shame the same can’t be said for the defensive set up still?
    But still time, even if not so much available now to ourselves
