Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal with Celtic for Charly Musonda to join the Scottish champions on loan for 18 months.

It would see the 21-year-old Belgian spend the whole of next season at Parkhead as well as the rest of the current campaign.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, who was previously on the coaching staff at Chelsea, has attempted to sign Musonda before and now appears likely to snap him up.

Musonda has made seven first-team appearances this season and scored on his full debut in the 5-1 Carabao Cup win over Championship side Nottingham Forest in September.

He has also scored two goals in two appearances for the club’s Under-21 side during their run to the EFL Trophy semi-finals, where they will play Lincoln next month.
