Maceo Rigters´ agent is hoping to fly into Glasgow in the next 24 hours to tie up a move to Celtic from NAC Breda - and, if talks go well, the 23-year-old striker will sign a contract later this week.

Norwich City - managed by former Celtic favourite Peter Grant - are also interested but the Scottish champions are favourites to land Rigters.

Smit told the Daily Record: "I would hope to be in Glasgow on Monday and make a final agreement with Celtic. It is my hope that we can agree a deal soon. If I can´t get into Scotland right away I´ll be there on Tuesday. There are no other clubs involved apart from Norwich but Celtic are way ahead."
