Diego Laxalt set for Celtic medical ahead of loan move from AC Milan

AC Milan left-back Diego Laxalt is due to arrive in London on Monday to complete a medical before a loan move to Celtic.

The 27-year-old Uruguay international will spend the season with the Scottish champions, who are negotiating with Milan over the inclusion of an option to make the deal permanent, according to Sky in Italy.

Laxalt joined Milan from Genoa in August 2018 and has gone on to play 35 times for the Serie A club.

However, he does not appear to be part of Stefano Pioli’s plans this season and has not played a minute of Milan’s campaign so far.

Celtic are keen to sign a left-back before the transfer window closes for Scottish clubs at midnight on Monday.


Greg Taylor is currently their only player in the position following the departure of Boli Bolingoli, who joined Istanbul Basaksehir on loan in September.

Bolingoli was allowed to depart after leaving Neil Lennon furious by breaching coronavirus rules in August.

The 25-year-old travelled to Spain without telling the club, and then played in a league game just days later when he should have been in quarantine.
