Celtic sending Efrain Juarez to Brescia on-loan

Celtic midfielder Efrain Juarez is set to move to Italy.

The Scottish Sun says the Mexico international will join Serie ABrescia on-loan until the end of this season.

Juarez, 22, was only signed by Hoops boss Neil Lennon from UNAM Pumas last summer. But he failed to establish himself and Lennon has sanctioned his exit.

The deal was close to being completed last night after hours of drama which almost saw talks collapse, with officials unsure whether Juarez would qualify for a work permit.

But Brescia have been told it will be rubber-stamped as the midfielder has played in ten out of the last 13 international games.
