Celtic are in talks to sign Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts on loan for the remainder of the season, according to Sky sources
Roberts joined City from Championship side Fulham last summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £12m, but has featured just once in the Premier League this season - a four-minute cameo in the 4-1 defeat at Tottenham in September.
The 18-year-old has twice appeared in the Capital One Cup for City, coming on as a substitute in the victories over Sunderland and Crystal Palace.
If Celtic are able to complete a deal for Roberts, he will become manager Ronny Deila's second signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of defender Erik Sviatchenko from Danish champions FC Midtjylland.
