Celtic are in advanced talks with West Ham forward Albian Ajeti over a season-long loan.

The Scottish Premiership champions are hoping to secure a deal with an option to buy, for a fee of around £5m.

Ajeti is keen to secure first-team action next season, with the prospect of European football at Celtic an appealing option for the 23-year-old.

Celtic have been interested in Ajeti since last summer, before he made an £8m move to West Ham from Basel.

A number of Premier League and European clubs are also keen on the Switzerland international, who made just nine substitute appearances for West Ham in the Premier League this season.
