Scepovic braced for transfer

Stefan Scepovic expects his departure from Sporting Gijon to be finalised soon but is not sure yet that his destination will be Celtic.

Sporting manager Abelardo Fernandez admitted earlier this week that he was planning for a future without the talented striker.

Reports suggested that a switch to Celtic was imminent, and Scepovic says he would relish the opportunity to join the Scottish champions.

However, the 24-year-old has other options, including PSV Eindhoven, and is convinced that he will shortly be linking up with a new cub.

"I know that Celtic want me but the Sporting board has told me that so far they didn't receive any offer from Scotland," the Serbian told Sport.

"But Sporting will sell me, that is for sure. They even told me not to train and play so that I could not get injured.

"Celtic? I would be happy to go there, for sure. But PSV is also big club and I must admit that there are even more options.

"I think that soon everything will be sorted out."
