Milan Misun has described the prospect of joining Celtic as the perfect Christmas present.
The 18-year-old Czech defender is set to complete a move to the Scottish champions on Thursday, according to his agent.
The Czech Republic Under-20 international, who has made only 12 first-team appearances for FK Pribram, said: "It is the best gift I could have got for Christmas."
He added: "I want to say a big thank you to Pribram coach Massimo Morales as he was not frightened to give a young player his chance in this league.
"I am incredibly happy that I chose to start my career there.
"When I was at Celtic on trial for a couple of days, they treated me really well and I believe I can improve as a player there."
Misun's agent Ondrej Chovanec added: "Milan should be in Glasgow on Thursday to sign a professional deal.
"We are delighted as we have managed to get our player to one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
"There was also huge interest from AC Milan, but Celtic acted quickly."
