A whole host of Celtic fans were ecstatic on Twitter to see the latest claim involving Jota.
Celtic managed to sign Jota on loan from Benfica over the summer, with the winger clearly not in the first-team plans in Lisbon having been loaned out last campaign as well – but that has proved to benefit Celtic.
Will Celtic win the league?
When Jota was signed by Celtic, he arrived with a €7.5m (£6.3m) clause in his contract which could be activated, and according to Portuguese outlet A Bola, that is what the Bhoys are looking to do and are now in ‘advanced talks’ to keep the winger permanently.
A lot of Celtic fans are very happy on Twitter with this transfer claim.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“£6.5m for Jota is a no brainer, an absolute steal”
“Things you love too see , get it done”
“Get. It. Done. He is deal of the decade at that price. We all know he’ll be worth ten times that I two years.”
“The only transfer any Celtic fan should be tweeting about today delightful”
“Someone take the boards temperature”
“Please be true. Tremendous talent.”
“please please please”
Considering how well he’s already contributed to Celtic’s season, being able to sign him for just £6.3m halfway through his loan spell would certainly be a superb piece of business and prove once more that the board are fully backing Ange Postecoglou, who saw three new arrivals earlier this week.
