Stefan Johansen expects to complete his move from Stromsgodset to Celtic on Wednesday.

The 23-year old Norwegian midfielder has already undergone a medical with the Glasgow giants and the deal should be finalised as soon as possible.

Johansen said he had sought advice former Hoops defender Thomas Rogne, now with Wigan Athletic, and other Norwegians regarding his transfer to Celtic Park.

"I have taken the medical. Maybe tomorrow it's all going to be figured out,” he said.

"I talked a little bit with Thomas because I played in the (Norway) Under-21s with him.

"I have heard from the national (team) guys that it's a fantastic city and the Celtic fans are unbelievable.

"I hope it's going to work out and I'm looking forward to it."
