Celtic are closing in on a deal to sign Matt O’Riley from MK Dons for £1.5 million, The Athletic understands.

The 21-year-old, who moved to the League One club from Fulham last January, is expected to join Ange Postecoglou’s side in the next couple of days.

A former England youth international, O’Riley has attracted interest from clubs across Europe and in the Championship, where Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City were both strongly linked with the attacking midfielder.

With seven goals and five assists to his name for MK Dons this season, O’Riley has been one of the standout players in League One.

Fulham are due a sizeable sell-on fee, understood to be as high as 50 per cent, as part of the compensation settlement that was agreed when O’Riley signed for MK Dons last January.

O’Riley had spent the previous six months training with MK Dons after rejecting the chance to stay at Fulham, where he had been since the age of eight.
