Celtic have agreed and accepted a £1.2m fee with Standard Liege for the transfer of Scottish striker Tony Watt.

The deal was announced on Monday night and Watt will join the Belgian club, subject to a medical and agreeing personal terms with the club.

Watt was on loan to Liege’s rivals, Lierse last season and scored eight goals for the club.

He’s probably best known for his public bust ups with manager Stanley Menzo but, more so for the goal he scored against Barcelona in the UEfA Champions League, which helped them go on to achieve an historic 2-1 win against the Spanish Giants.

Liege are also reportedly interested in Celtic centre half Dirgil van Dijk who proved to be a brilliant success for the Scottish club last season.
