Celtic announce signing

Ismaila Soro's deal to Celtic has been confirmed after the Ivorian midfielder passed a medical at Parkhead ahead of his proposed £2million.

The player has penned a four-and-a-half year deal with ongoing work permit process and international clearance to be signed off.

Hearts forward exits

Arbroath have confirmed the signing of Craig Wighton on a loan deal until the end of the season from Hearts.

The forward was moved to the reserves by new boss Daniel Stendel.

Wighton is set to be joined by Jake Mulraney. The Irish winger is deu to complete a deal to move to MLS outfit Atlanta United.

According to the Daily Record, Atlanta will pay a six-figure fee for the player.

Edouard's £30m bid

Leicester City will bid £30million for Celtic ace Odsonne Edouard in the summer, according to the Daily Record.

Brendan Rodgers wants to be reunited with the Frenchman who has netted 16 goals in 32 games this season.

Rangers legend Ally McCoist revealed Thierry Henry believes the striker is set for the very top.

Hearts striker bid

Hearts have launched a £200,000 bid for former Ross County striker Liam Boyce, according to a report.

The Burton Albion forward is wanted by Sunderland but the Jam Tarts are looking to beat the English League One side as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Banks to Palace

Scott Banks has joined Crystal Palace from Dundee United.

The U19 Scotland international has signed a three-year deal with the Premier League side.

Goalkeeper nears Rangers exit

Jak Alnwick is edging closer to signing a pre-contract with Blackpool.

The Rangers goalkeeper is on loan at the English side and his contract expires at the end of the season.

Hibs goalkeeper exits

Chris Maxwell's Hibs departure has been confirmed by the club.

Signed on loan from Preston North End by former boss Paul Heckingbottom, Jack Ross has cut his spell short to allow him to return to his parent club.

Rangers starlet to depart?

Jordan Houston is set to depart Rangers and sign with Ayr United permanently, according to speculation.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Somerset Park, making 17 appearances for the side this season. He has also featured twice for Rangers Colts in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.

It is claimed by Rangers podcast Four Lads Had a Dream podcast that the right-back will sign a deal which will give the Ibrox side an option to bring him back.

Barisic's new deal

The Croatian has been one of the Ibrox side's key players since securing his place as the first-choice left-back.

Barisic's future had been in doubt last season and earlier in the campaign, but since netting a crucial free-kick winner against St Mirren at the end of August he has hardly looked back.

His form has been such that he has been linked with moves to Serie A giants Napoli and AS Roma.

The latter were reported to have been looking to do a loan deal with option to buy this month but dropped their interest with Rangers valuing the 27-year-old at £10million according to reports.

Now the club are nearing an extension to the player's deal which runs until 2022.

Steven Gerrard said: “We are in talks, so it is getting closer as the days go by. I am confident because the boy is happy.

“I have a fantastic relationship with Borna and he seems really settled here.

“He took a bit of time to settle but he has got the fans right where you want them. He is getting the support from the terraces his performances deserve. When you are happy as a footballer you should stay put.”

Wanyama to Celtic unlikely

The recruit of Ismaila Soro from Israeli side Bnei Yehuda will all but end any interest Celtic have in Victor Wanyama.

The Parkhead side are waiting on a work permit to be confirmed before completing the £2million signing of the Ivorian midfielder.

Former Celt ace Wanyama was wanted in the summer, but according to reports in Turkey he is set to complete a move to Galatasaray.

Striker to exit Hibs

Oli Shaw is set to leave Hibs for Ross County.

According to the Scottish Sun, a fee has been agreed for the 21-year-old who has barely featured under Paul Heckingbottom and Jack Ross.
