Mohamed Elyounoussi is set to re-sign for Celtic tomorrow after agreeing the terms of a new season-long loan, Football Insider understands.
The Norway international is heading back to Parkhead for a second spell following an impressive 2018-19 campaign that was marred only by a serious foot injury.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that Elyounoussi has told the club today he has made up his mind to rejoin them and be part of their historic 10-in-a-row tilt.
The Hoops already had an agreement in place with Celtic over the terms, which includes a loan fee.
Now, the player has agreed to the move and the paperwork will be signed tomorrow.
Elyounoussi has also been the subject of strong interest from Spanish duo Real Sociedad and Real Betis.
But he has opted for another campaign in Scotland after being made surplus to requirements at parent club Southampton.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has given the green light for the left winger to leave St Mary’s for another campaign.
It is a major boost for Neil Lennon, who has spoken after securing Elyounoussi on a new deal.
The Norwegian ended his loan season at Celtic in the SPFL team of the year.
But he failed to build upon an impressive start, partly due to a foot injury that ruled him out for months.
He scored seven goals and providing six assists in 15 games before breaking down in November.
Elyounoussi subsequently failed to get an extended run of games before the mid-March lockdown.
In other Celtic news, the club have been tipped by insider to sign Callum McGregor’s best pal if deal collapses.
