Celtic are set to miss out on Patrick Roberts with the player set to move to La Liga.

It is being reported in Spain that the 21-year-old will sign for Giorna on a season-long loan deal either on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Roberts has been linked with a move back to Celtic having spent the last two-and-a-half seasons on loan at Parkhead with moves elsewhere also touted.

Yet Girona are set to win the race having failed in a move for another talented City youngster, Brahim Diaz, with Aleix Garcia already on loan from the Premier League champions.

Giorna are partly-owned by the City Football Group which own Manchester City.

Robert made 78 appearances for Celtic, winning seven trophies.
