Expert: Celtic 'hard at work' on summer transfers with Mohanad Jeahze deal 'almost done'

Ange Postecoglou is already working on new Celtic signings after securing the Scottish Premiership title.

That’s according to former Hoops hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the club’s summer plans.

On 10 May, The Scottish Sun reported Celtic are close to completing the signing of Hammarby defender Mohanad Jeahze, 25.

This comes after Celtic secured the Premiership title with a 1-1 draw against Dundee United on Wednesday (11 May).

The Hoops now need reinforcements for a Champions League group stage campaign next season.

McAvennie insists the club are hard at work on new signings with the capture of Jeahze “almost done”.

“Ange is already hard at work on getting new players in,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“It looks like this defender is going to come in, from reading around it looks like that is almost done.

“Let’s get some of these deals done as soon as possible. There is no point in waiting around.

“We are back in the Champions League and that is just a magnificent achievement, we need more bodies.

“If we get this guy in then we have Ralston, Taylor, Juranovic and Jeazhe who can play left-back.

“That’s the kind of depth we need if we are to be a bit better in Europe next season.

“Hopefully we can get this one over the line and a few more after that.”

Jeahze has made 60 appearances for Swedish side Hammarby since joining the club in August 2020.

He has four Iraq caps to his name.
