The Daily Mail are reporting that Celtic have agreed terms with Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster, and he will be signing for the Glasgow club, probably over the weekend..
Fraser Forster – reached agreement with Celtic
The 24 year-old 6’7″ goalkeeper has no future at Newcastle, and it is thought that Celtic paid £2M for the Hexham-born goalkeeper.
Talks over personal terms with Fraser’s representatives have dragged on for a few weeks, but the Mail is reporting that terms have finally been agreed.
Fraser played the last two seasons on loan at Celtic, and appeared 94 times, and we had thought that Fraser might want to hold out in case a Premier League side became interested.
However, it seems that Celtic gave Forster until the end of the month to make a decision, and Fraser seems to have been able to agree terms with Celtic, who will not have Rangers to play next season in the Scottish Premier League.
We wonder which team will win the SPL next season?
In any case, the £2M will come in handy to bring in new players to Newcastle this summer.
