Celtic are set to sign Barcelona midfielder Marc Crosas for a fee of £2 million. The 20-year old has impressed Hoop boss Gordon Strachan during his two pre-season friendlies in Scotland this summer and he could complete a move as early as Monday.

Agent Angel Castell told BBC Sport: "As of close of business on Friday, a deal was not done and I have had no confirmation since from Barcelona."Barcelona were thinking of a loan, but the player is keen on a transfer and is waiting to fly to Glasgow."

Celtic look to of saw off competition from Sampdoria, Sporting Gijon and Sevilla in signing the Spanish defensive midfielder. Crosas spent much of last season on loan at French giants Lyon after struggling to break into the first team at the Camp Nou.
