The 20-year-old's future has been the leading A-League transfer story, with English Premier League clubs Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Reading having also taken an interest.

But having joined Celtic on trial for their mid-season training camp in Spain, it now appears Rogic is destined for a move to Glasgow.

"Central Coast Mariners FC wish to officially advise that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Tomas Rogic to Celtic FC," a club statement read.

"Rogic will now travel to Glasgow from Spain with the Bhoys, and will discuss personal terms with the Scottish giants over the coming days."

The move is still subject to personal terms between Celtic and Rogic, with the fledgling Australia international expected to cost about 600,000 Australian dollars (£395,000).

Celtic assistant boss Johan Mjallby is hopeful the move can be completed.

He told the Scottish Sun: "It is great news Tom is coming back with us and hopefully we will get the deal done. He has been really impressive in training and you can see he has real ability.

"I'm sure Tom watched the games against Barcelona and realised playing for Celtic in the Champions League is second to none.

"It is great for him, too, as Celtic is a team full of young talents who are looking to improve and have great careers. Celtic is a great place for Tom to start in European football."
