Freddie Ljungberg has passed a medical at Celtic and is set to finalise his switch to the Parkhead outfit.
The 33-year-old former Sweden midfielder has been training with the Hoops this week following his departure from MLS outfit Chicago Fire.
Ljungberg has impressed manager Neil Lennon during his time with the club and talks have been ongoing regarding a deal.
The ex-Arsenal ace has now completed an examination and is expected to pen terms with the Glasgow side ahead of their weekend Old Firm clash with Rangers. (Sky Sports)
Neil Lennon will be pleased to have secured a player with vast experience and seemingly enough in the tank for one last hurrah. The Swedish international has been playing regularly in the MLS and should be able to make an impact in the SPL and could well give Celtic an extra edge in their pursuit of arch rivals Rangers.
The Parkhead boss will now reportedly turn his attentions to Aston Villa pair Stephen Ireland and Richard Dunne, two players who probably do not have much hope of becoming models of any kind.
