Patrick Roberts has made three appearances as a substitute for Manchester City

Celtic are close to securing an 18-month loan deal for Manchester City midfielder Patrick Roberts.

Roberts, 18, is due in Glasgow for a medical over the weekend.

The England under-19 international made the move from Fulham to City in the summer for a fee thought to be in the region of £12m.

Celtic took striker John Guidetti and defender Jason Denayer on loan from Manchester City last season and signed Dedryck Boyata from them this summer.

Roberts has made three appearances as a substitute for City this season, having played 22 first-team games for Fulham.
