ALBIAN AJETI looks set to sign for Celtic after discussions were held between the manager and the player’s representatives last night. Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph is saying that the Swiss Internationalist is nearing a loan-to-buy agreement with the Scottish Champions.
West Ham striker Albian Ajeti is close to agreeing terms with Celtic for a loan deal, with an option to buy.
Neil Lennon held further talks with the player’s agent last night.
Lennon’s intervention has convinced Ajeti to choose Celtic.
Could be done early next week.

The 23-year-old Swiss International has failed to make an impact since joining the Hammers from Basel last summer for £8m. Now, Neil Lennon looks like he has managed to persuade Ajeti to a agree a deal to bring him to Paradise on a loan-to-buy agreement. The fee of £5m appears to be the buy-out agreement and looks like shrewd business by Celtic.
David Moyes has been ready to sanction a deal to allow the Swiss striker to switch the London Stadium for the Scottish Champions after just 9 Premier League appearances. Now, signalling his intent to get Ajeti out of the club has sounded out other options ahead of the new English season.
