Celtic are ready to confirm the signing of Hearts star Aaron Hickey as a reputable journalist insists that the Scottish Champions have now beaten Bayern Munich to the highly wanted defender.

Last week it appeared that Hickey was ready to move to the Champions League winners and take a position amongst their B squad, the tables have turned as MIKE MCGRATH had posted the breaking news last night on his social media account that Celtic look very likely to sign the Hearts player for a cool £1.5 million.

With Bolingoli set to leave as soon as Celtic can punt him and Lennon already having lost Hayes, the Scottish Champions are in dire need of recruitments for the left-back position.

As a former Celtic recruit, Aaron Hickey was always destined to return as now he can cement a place in the first team with already having proved to Lennon he can hold down a first team place with Hearts.

The young defender is highly efficient with both his feet and can also push up the park similar to Tierney who left for the Gunners.

Celtic are also nearing completion on signing another young Scot as David Turnbull is also set to sign for the Hoops, we are glad to see Celtic finally signing up local Scottish talent instead of English clubs stealing them from the league.
