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.

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