Eddie Howe took charge of Celtic ‘in principle’ after reports linked him to the club.
Now, he is set to be appointed the new club manager after the former Bournemouth manager agreed to lead.
Howe has been unemployed since leaving the Cherries following their relegation from the Premier League in August 2020.
Newcastle United and Sheffield United have both been linked with a transfer for the 43-year-old.
But Howe took charge of Celtic ‘in principle’, and per the Scottish Sun, he will take over at Celtic Park.
The finer details of the deal have been ironed out, according to the report.
Howe will now sign a £2 million-a-year deal with Celtic, and a formal announcement will come next week.
Celtic are the recently dethroned Scottish champions.
