Nicolas Kuhn to Celtic is now a ‘done deal’ after huge development – sources

The Celtic signing of Rapid Vienna winger Nicolas Kuhn is now a “done deal”, sources have told Football Insider.


It is believed that the Hoops have reached a full agreement for the capture of the German, 24, and the finishing touches are now being put to the transfer.


Celtic have secured a work permit for Kuhn and only have minor paperwork issues to sort before the transfer is complete.

The deal, which is expected to cost over £2million, is regarded by Hoops chiefs as a huge coup.


Brendan Rodgers has made Kuhn a top target this month after his impressive performances in the Austrian top flight, notching two goals and five assists across 16 league appearances this season.


He is adept at chance-creation – something the Hoops have often struggled with this season.


The former Ajax man has started all but one game in the Austrian Bundesliga this season and has helped guide his side to sixth in the table.


He moved to the club for a reported £500,000 in the summer of 2022 from Bayern Munich, where he spent all of his time with the reserve squad.


Kuhn is a versatile asset who predominantly plays on the right wing but has performed successfully on both flanks, in attacking midfield and as a centre-forward across his career.

The 2000-born ace featured at every level for Germany’s youth sides from the under-15s to the under-20s, making his last appearance for the under-20s in November 2019.


Celtic sit at the summit of the Scottish top-flight and next face Buckie Thistle in the Scottish Cup on 21 January after the winter break.
