CD Motagua defender Emilio Izaguirrre is being heavily linked with a move to Scottish giants Celtic FC.

The 24-year old Honduras international has flown into Glasgow to hold talks with the Hoops as they look for defensive cover.

Motagua president Pedro Atala also admitted that Izaguirre had received offers from MLS outfit Toronto FC but said the magnitude of the Celtic bid was far bigger than that of the Reds.

“Toronto's offer was not even close to the offer we got from Glasgow,” Atala told SunSport.

"I also think it will help Emilio because Celtic is clearly a far bigger club which is known internationally.

"There were also offers from English and Belgian clubs but Celtic's was best for us and the player."
