Celtic are 'very close' to completing a deal for Man City forward Giorgos Samaras claims the player's agent, Lee Anderson.

After joining on loan in January last season, Samaras impressed boss Gordon Strachan by scoring six goals for the SPL champions.

And although Celtic had struggled to Man City's £3m valuation of the Greece international, it is now likely that a deal can be concluded.

Anderson confirmed: "It's very close."
