Celtic have agreed a deal with Santos Laguna for striker Gustavo Ruelas, according to the Mexican club.
The two clubs agreed a co-operation agreement earlier in the year and as part of that Celtic have now reportedly sealed a loan deal for Ruelas.
Santos have announced that the 19-year-old is now set to travel to Scotland to finalise the move, which will see him head to Celtic Park until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal.
Ruelas has already talked with fellow Mexican Efrain Juarez about the move.
"He [Juarez] is a good person and he is aware of everything and fortunately he speaks English," Ruelas said.
On his move he added: "I'm very happy, I am a little rushed with the news as overnight I have been told I am going to another club."
Ruelas, who has been called up by both Mexico and USA's youth squads, joined Laguna in 2006 after previously playing for MLS side Chivas.
