Celtic on verge of double swoop for Schalke's Pukki, Ashdod's Biton

Celtic are close to securing the signatures of Teemu Pukki and Nir Biton according to manager Neil Lennon.

Schalke striker Pukki and FC Ashdod midfielder Biton have both been pursued by the Scottish champions in recent weeks and Lennon suggests that the pair could soon be donning the green and white hoops.

When quizzed on Pukki, Lennon said the Hoops 'were close' while the Biton deal was 'more or less in the bag'.

On Biton he added: "He will come into the squad so that will freshen us up."

Finnish forward Pukki will join for around £2.4million with Israeli holding mid Biton to arrive at Celtic Park for £700,000.
