Emilio Izaguirre is close agreeing a three-year deal with Celtic, reports The Scotsman. The Honduran left-back arrived in Glasgow at the weekend and is undergoing a medical ahead of a £600,000 move.
"I am ready and very happy because I have now fulfilled my dream of playing overseas. I thank God I have been given this chance and I hope and pray I can be a success. I will not waste this opportunity. It will make me a better footballer and a more experienced one," he said.
"Celtic are one of the biggest teams in Britain and they are known throughout the world. I know Efrain Juarrez who plays here. I hope to make Hondurans proud of me so that one day, when I want to end my career, I can come back and play for Motagua.
"My agent worked very hard to get me a move to a big European club. Now I'm going to achieve my lifetime ambition of signing for a huge team. I go to Europe to sign for Celtic and I am very excited about it.
