According to Turkish TV station Lig TV, Stefan Johansen has agreed a move to Galatasaray - and the final details of a move from Celtic are being discussed.

The Bhoys have already allowed the likes of Carlton Cole, Colin Kazim-Richards and Stefan Scepovic to leave the club this summer, with new manager Brendan Rodgers re-shaping his squad.

Now, Rodgers looks set to a lose a more important player than those three departures, as midfielder Stefan Johansen appears to be edging towards the exit door.

Johansen, 25, was signed by Neil Lennon back in January 2014, having starred in his native Norway with Stromsgodset, and he quickly became a vital player for Celtic.

The Norway international smashed 13 goals from midfield during the 2014-15 season, and whilst many expected him to eventually make a move to the Premier League on the back of his superb performances, he endured a torrid campaign last term.

Form and fitness deserted Johansen, and he looked like a shadow of his former self, all of which prompted talk of a possible summer departure from Celtic Park.

Now, Turkish TV station Lig TV report that Johansen is on the verge of completing his Celtic exit, having agreed a deal to sign for Galatasaray this summer, meaning he will be joining one of European football's biggest clubs.

The Turkish giants are looking to revamp their squad this summer, and it's believed that they've agreed terms with midfielder Johansen - and only have some minor details with Celtic to iron out before the deal is finalised.

After two-and-a-half years at Celtic, Johansen now looks set to leave Glasgow - and potentially offer new manager Rodgers a boost in terms of transfer funds.

Do you think it's time for Johansen to leave Celtic?
