The deal could be delayed, however, due to the complexities of Connell's contract situation.

Celtic are hoping to recruit the midfielder for a £250,000 cross-border compensation fee. In order for them to do so, Connell's contract will have to be terminated as he's a third-year scholar and won't be allowed to move freely.

The player has sought to terminate his deal with the financially-stricken club. Although, according to the latest reports down south, his 14-day notice has been rejected by Bolton's administrators.

It would seem Celtic will have to negotiate a fee for his release.
