Greg Taylor has agreed the terms of a four-year contract with Celtic as the club work on finalising three-way deadline day deal, Football Insider understands.
The Hoops have agreed to sign Taylor, 21, from Kilmarnock with centre-back Jack Hendry and left-back Calvin Miller heading the other way in a hastily-arranged exchange deal.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that Taylor has reached agreement with the club over a contract that will run until 2023.
He underwent a medical at the weekend and will put pen to paper today if the Hendry and Miller deals are pushed through ahead of tonight’s cut-off.
Celtic and Kilmarnock are negotiating for Hendry to move on loan and for Miller to join on a permanent transfer.
Neil Lennon revealed yesterday that he is “hopeful” the club can complete the signing of Taylor today and provide competition at left-back with recent arrival Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.
Taylor has been absent from Kilmarnock’s last two league matches and he has made it clear he is keen to move to the Scottish champions before the window shuts.
He has made 131 appearances for the Scottish Premiership club since graduating from the academy ranks at Rugby Park.
