Nancy midfielder Landry N'Guemo claims he is poised to seal his move to Celtic early next week.
Celtic are believed to have lined up a season-long loan swoop for N'Guemo after sealing the signing of his former Nancy team-mate Marc-Antoine Fortune earlier this week.
Defensive midfielder N'Guemo has revealed he will be travelling to Scotland next week to put the finishing touches to his move and he is excited at the prospect of joining the Glasgow outfit.
"I will be flying to Scotland on Monday to finalise the move to Celtic," N'Guemo said.
"There are no other clubs involved, I'm going to Celtic and it's a good move for me.
"They are a big club and it will be great to play in the same team as Marc-Antoine Fortune again.
"I'm really looking forward to starting my time at Celtic."
ConfidentMeanwhile, Celtic boss Tony Mowbray remains hopeful of agreeing a new deal with key defender Gary Caldwell.
Caldwell is entering the final year of his contract at Parkhead and as yet no new deal has been agreed.
Mowbray, who worked with Caldwell during his time at Hibernian, has rejected suggestions talks have stalled and he is confident the Scottish international will soon put pen-to-paper on a new extended contract.
"Nothing has stalled," said Mowbray.
"I've already had a conversation with Gary and I'll try to pick up the reins on that.
"It's not something I've gone into in depth yet with chief executive Peter Lawwell.
"But I would like to think that I've got a very strong relationship with Gary Caldwell."
