Celtic agree Rogic transfer
Central Coast Mariners and Celtic have agreed a deal for midfield playmaker Tomas Rogic.
The 20-year-old, who recently made his international debut for Australia, has been with the Hoops at their mid-season training camp in Spain.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon will be delighted he has beaten off competition from English Premier League teams to land Rogic.
"Central Coast Mariners FC wish to officially advise that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Tomas Rogic to Celtic FC," the Australian club said in a statement.
"Subject to Rogic reaching a personal agreement with Celtic, the attacking midfielder will formally be transferred to Neil Lennon's team."
Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby is looking forward to working with the player further.
The Swede said: "It is great news Tom is coming back with us and hopefully we will get the deal done. He has been really impressive in training and you can see he has real ability.
"I'm sure Tom watched the games against Barcelona and realised playing for Celtic in the Champions League is second to none.
"It is great for him, too, as Celtic is a team full of young talents who are looking to improve and have great careers. Celtic is a great place for Tom to start in European football."
