Nigeria international defender Juwon Oshaniwa is on the verge of joining Ambrose Efe at Scottish champions Celtic.
The 22-year-old left-back who is a part of Nigeria's 23-man Nations Cup squad is reported to be on the wish list of Celtic's manager Neil Lennon.
Oshaniwa whilst confirming the possible move was cautious of saying too much as negotiations were still on-going.
“There are on-going discussions on the move for me to go to Scotland. Once they are done, then everybody will have a clearer picture,” Oshaniwa disclosed.
“It is God that has the final say, but they are already talking with my club president.
“My preparations with Nigeria (for the Africa Cup of Nations) did not allow me go to Scotland to do some of the things that I am required to do.
“But by God’s grace everything will work out well with Celtic,” he said.
If the transfer is successfully completed, Oshaniwa will be following the footsteps of his compatriot Ambrose Efe who also joined Celtic from the same Israeli club - FC Ashdod.
