THE BIG STORY: Many media sources are running with the story that Celtic are set to sign Chelsea's Charley Musonda. The player, most recently on-loan at Real Betis would cost between £4 and 5 million would fit with Brendan Rodgers' recent talk about trying to sign a 'big, big talent' for 'big money' before the start of the season.

Musonda is an attacking midfielder who can also play as a winger, so he would presumably be our replacement for Patrick Roberts. The inevitable YouTube compilation is below, and we'll keep you updated on what seems like an exciting transfer move by Celtic.

OTHER NEWS: Brendan Rodgers was fairly satisfied with yesterday's 1-1 draw with Rapid Vienna, with Moussa Dembele's return from injury and goal being the game's main talking point.

Latest Celtic signing Kundai Benyu wants to follow in the footsteps of Jordon Ibe and Raheem Sterling, who have worked with Brendan Rodgers and went on to great success.
