Celtic have confirmed they have secured a deal to bring Kenyan Victor Wanyama to Parkhead.
Skysports.com revealed on Wednesday that the Scottish Premier League side had seen a bid accepted for the midfielder by Belgian club Germinal Beerschot.
And the Hoops confirmed on their official website on Thursday that they have agreed a fee for the 20-year-old, who has accepted personal terms.
A club statement read: "Victor will join the club in the summer subject to a work permit and medical."
Wanyama, who is the brother of Inter Milan's McDonald Mariga, made his international debut aged just 15 in an unofficial friendly against Nigeria.
Celtic's bitter Old Firm rivals, Rangers, had also been linked with a move for the defender, while Aston Villa were understood to be interested.
Wanyama's impending arrival follows the signings of full-back Adam Matthews from Cardiff and centre-back Kelvin Wilson from Nottingham Forest, both of whom signed pre-contract deals in the winter.
Manager Neil Lennon has also been linked with Israeli striker Omer Damari, who plays for Maccabi Petah Tikva, and Kaizer Chiefs forward Knowledge Musona.
Lennon has also admitted interest in Central Coast Mariners midfielder Mustafa Amini, 18, who will play against the Hoops in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
