'One hell of a signing', 'World class' – Celtic fans in meltdown as medical reportedly scheduled
Celtic’s loan move for Chelsea attacker Charly Musonda looks close to going through and fans are giddy with excitement.
The Herald reports that an 18-month loan deal for the attacker is almost complete, with an agreement in principle in place.
It claims that Celtic have beaten off competition for the 21-year-old attacker from Spanish side Leganes and Italy’s Roma.
He is set for a medical tomorrow and if he passes he could be set to go straight into the Celtic squad for their game against Hearts on Tuesday night.
That’s fired up the Celtic fans who have had a relatively quiet January so far, with one saying that Musonda is “world class”.
Another Celtic fan noted that Chelsea fans seem gutted that he’s going, which he says is a very good sign.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Celtic fans on hearing the exciting news:
Holding back excitement until it’s announce but Musonda would be an excellent addition to this squad. Hope it wouldn’t paper over the cracks however that we’ve spent just £1.2m this window. That’s under 10% of the VVD money we received this window.

If we land Charly Musonda on an 18 month loan deal that will be one hell of a signing…… will be seriously in the huff if it doesn’t happen now. ????

Musonda on 18 month loan is class. Would only have a player of his quality for 2 seasons max if we bought.

I’d be delighted if we get musonda as i’m sure most of us would…. though would still like us to spend some bloddy cash.
