Celtic have agreed a deal with Manchester City to secure Patrick Roberts on an 18-month loan deal.

The 18-year-old winger is expected to undergo a medical with the Parkhead side on Saturday.

Roberts signed for City from Sky Bet Championship side Fulham last summer for a fee reported to be in the region of £12 million.

The England Under-19 international has made three substitute appearances for the Barclays Premier League club this season.

He would be the fourth player to join Celtic from City during Ronny Deila’s tenure as manager following Jason Denayer and John Guidetti, who both had loan spells at the club, and Dedryck Boyata, who signed on a four-year-deal last summer.

Celtic play Ross County in the League Cup semi-final at Hampden Park on Sunday.
