Celtic 'closing in on Kyle Joseph transfer with Scots set to beat Tottenham to 19-year-old Wigan youngster'

CELTIC are closing in on a deal to sign Kyle Joseph from Wigan, reports say.

The Scotland Under-19 international's contract expires in June and he has plenty of clubs interested in signing him on a free.

As a result, he has not extended his contract, instead choosing to explore his options.

According to the Daily Mail, Celtic are set to conclude a pre-contract which will bring the forward to Scotland.

Tottenham and Arsenal were among those linked with the teen, who has five goals in 16 games so far this season.

Joseph has made a huge impact for Wigan since making his debut for the club in October.

He grabbed his first for the Latics in the win at Sunderland in December.

And he impressed the ever-increasing number of scouts by firing a hat-trick against Burton shortly afterwards.

If Joseph decides to move, the Latics will be entitled to compensation for the striker.

Rangers – on the verge of a first league title since 2010 – were also said to be in for the youngster.


The Ibrox side are now 21 points clear of the Hoops in the Premiership table.

And with Celtic only having 21 total points left to play for, anything less than a win over Dundee United would end the title race.

Already Rangers fans have started the party while Rangers players were filmed dancing in their dressing room.
