Celtic target Logan Bailly pictured in Glasgow airport as reported deal moves closer

The goalkeeper is on the cusp of a move to the Scottish Premiership title holders.

Celtic target Logan Bailly was on Tuesday pictured at Glasgow Airport, as the goalkeeper headed for talks with the Bhoys over a move from Leuven.

The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to Parkhead, as his club in Belgium confirmed on their website that they had accepted a bid for the international goalkeeper to join the Scottish champions this summer.

Bailly is set to rival Craig Gordon for the number one jersey, with Celtic depleted in the goalkeeping department after Lukasz Zaluska left upon the expiry of his contract.

The Leuven stopper has eight caps to his name for Belgium, though he hasn't featured for his country for several years. Bailly has played in various other leagues around Europe already however, including a spell with Borussia Monchengladbach in the the Bundesliga, so should know what it takes to quickly settle in if he were to make the move to the Bhoys.

Celtic are also said to be close to tying up other deals in the coming days, having had a bid accepted for Dundee United forward Nadir Ciftci according to STV, as well as an exciting yet unlikely deal for Norwegian wonder kid Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid, which has been covered by the Scotsman.

It could be a case that Celtic have as many as three new players in the squad for next season in the coming days.
