Union Berlin agree £10m deal to sign Celtic's Juranovic

Union Berlin have agreed a deal with Celtic worth up to £10m to sign right-back Josip Juranovic.

The initial fee is understood to be £7.5m plus add-ons and the Croatian has been given permission to travel to Germany to complete the move to the Bundesliga side

The 27-year-old had been a target for Chelsea this January, while Spanish sides Barcelona and Atletico Madrid had also been looking at a move for him.

Celtic had wanted to keep Juranovic in Glasgow and held talks over an improved new contract. However, neither party could reach an agreement before he departed for the World Cup in Qatar.

The former Legia Warsaw defender now looks set to depart the Scottish Premiership side after joining in August 2021 for a reported £2.5m.

Celtic have already announced the signing of Canada right-back Alistair Johnston on a five-year deal.
