John Guidetti on the verge of leaving Man City permanently

Manchester City striker John Guidetti, who is currently on loan at Celtic, could be on the verge of earning a permanent move to Scotland in a £3 million deal.

The Swedish international has scored 11 goals for the Scottish champions this season – and boss Ronnie Deila has spoken on more than one occasion about his desire to tie him to Celtic Park on a more permanent basis.

Personal terms on the deal have yet to be agreed, but Manchester City are not expected to put up much of a fight as they look to offload several players in preparation for some big January spending.

Time to draw line under time at City

Guidetti’s current contract with the Sky Blues expires in the summer, so selling him now is Manuel Pellegrini’s last chance to cash in on the 22-year-old.

It is believed that City chiefs value the striker in the region of £7 million, but are happy to sell him for a loss in order to focus on other targets and recoup something for a player they have invested considerable time in.

With the future of Celtic centre-back Virgil van Dijk still in doubt any hint at a permanent move for Guidetti will buoy the Bhoys, as the January transfer window continues to unfold for a Hoops side still in something of a transition under Delia.
