Celta Vigo are closing on the signing of Brazilian midfielder Iriney Santos.
Primera Liga outfit Celta Vigo are closing on the signing of Brazilian midfielder Iriney Santos from Rayo Vallecano.
Newly-promoted Celta have already opened talks with Iriney's representatives and are believed to have offered the 24-year-old a four-year contract.
Coach Fernando Vazquez knows what the player will bring to Celta, having introduced Iriney to Spanish football during his spell in charge of Rayo three years ago.
Iriney's future with Rayo is in doubt after the club rejected his demands of an increased wage and Felix Carnero, Celta's sporting director, is confident of closing a deal this week.
