Celtic hope to seal permanent Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers deals

Celtic have opened talks with Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur in their bid to sign Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers on permanent deals.

The Scottish Premiership side intend to trigger the option-to-buy clauses for both players, who have impressed boss Ange Postecoglou.

A fee of £6.5m was negotiated in principle with Benfica to sign Jota, who is currently back in Lisbon to have his injury assessed.

An initial fee of £6m is in the agreement of Carter-Vickers’ loan, with one source telling Sky Sports News talks between Celtic and Spurs are based around the structure of any potential permanent deal. It’s understood there is no wriggle-room on the overall price for the United States defender.Ralston feared his Celtic career was over
