Celtic have made positive progress towards signing Greg Taylor after the player completed a medical ahead of his potential move to the Hoops, Sky Sports report.
However, there are still stumbling blocks to overcome, according to the outlet, who say that a deal might not be confirmed until late on Monday.
The broadcaster reckon that while terms have been agreed in principle between the two clubs and personals terms have also been agreed, there are other complexities to consider.
Primarily that’s the transfer of Jack Hendry on loan and Calvin Miller on a permanent basis to Rugby Park in the opposite direction.
Until the details of that duo’s move are sorted out there will be no confirmation of the deal for the left-back.
Should we be concerned this falls through?
As we’ve seen plenty of times with Celtic, we shouldn’t really get our hopes up about a signing until it’s officially announced on the club website.
The saga involving David Turnbull is proof anything can happen in a transfer deal.
However, the clubs would not have brought negotiations and arrangements to this stage if there wasn’t confidence from both ends that the deal would ultimately sorted out prior to tomorrow’s deadline.
Both Hendry and Miller will have a good opportunity at Kilmarnock to play regularly in the Scottish Premiership, so there should be no hold up on a personal level for them.
If the report he has completed a medical is true, Taylor is clearly committed to make the switch to Celtic.
Fingers crossed the technicalities all get sorted in time.
