Celtic poised to complete Logan Bailly signing, Belgian club announce deal agreed

Celtic are set to sign Logan Bailly, according to Belgian side OH Leuven.

Belgian side OH Leuven have confirmed on their official website that goalkeeper Logan Bailly has agreed to join Celtic this summer.

The Bhoys have already snapped up defenders Dedryck Boyata and Saidy Janko, but it now seems that manager Ronny Deila is on the verge of his third summer signing.

Goalkeeper Bailly, who has eight caps for Belgium, joined OHL in 2012 having left Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, and has rebuild his career back in his native Belgium.

The 29-year-old now looks set to end his three-year stay at OHL, after the Belgian outfit announced on their official website that Bailly had agreed a move to Celtic.

OHL wished Bailly well ahead of his move to Glasgow, citing that a return to European football was a big factor in the deal being agreed today.

Zaluska replacement

Craig Gordon may be the clear first choice goalkeeper under Celtic boss Ronny Deila, but another shot stopper was certainly required after the departure of Lukasz Zaluska.

The Polish goalkeeper left Celtic earlier this summer after his contract expired, meaning Deila had to bring in somebody to compete with Gordon for the No. 1 jersey.

The experienced Bailly is now expected to arrive as Gordon's understudy, given Celtic solid backup in case Gordon suffers an injury during a long season next term.
