ALBIAN AJETI is in Glasgow ahead of his move to the Scottish Champions. The Swiss Internationalist will undergo a medical and thrash out personal terms with Celtic hopeful to announce the signing before the Wednesday trip to face St Mirren.
Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph gave supporters an update, confirming that the attacker was in Glasgow and that Neil Lennon was the reason behind the deal’s resurrection.
West Ham striker Albian Ajeti is in Glasgow to complete his loan move to Celtic.
Ajeti and his agent are finalising terms with the Hoops and he’s due to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours.
The move was in jeaopardy two weeks ago, but I’m told Neil Lennon saved this deal.

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.
Ex-Celt David Moyes has sanctioned a deal to allow the Swiss striker to switch the London Stadium for the Scottish Champions after just 9 Premier League appearances. Hopefully his time in Glasgow will be like his Basel days as opposed to his West Ham ones.
However in another twist to this on-off transfer saga Scottish Sun are this evening claiming that Ajeti isn’t actually in Glasgow at all!
