Talks between Celtic and the player’s club Karpaty Lviv are said to be in the “final stages”.

It was reported yesterday that Shved had been absent from training in order to be present in the transfer talks.

The 21-year-old made his debut for the Ukrainian national team last year. He’s been in good form for Karpaty Lviv since returning to the club following a two-year stint with Sevilla.

If Celtic are able to complete the deal he would become the fourth signing of the January window, following attackers Timothy Weah, Oliver Burke and Vakoun Issouf Bayo.
