(Reuters) – Australian playmaker Tomas Rogic will discuss personal terms with Scottish club Celtic after the former European champions agreed a deal with the Central Coast Mariners for the 20-year-old’s transfer.
A short statement on the Mariners website said that Rogic would travel to Glasgow to finalise the deal after training with the Scottish champions in Spain on their mid-season break.
The Mariners did not reveal any details of the fee for Rogic, who has enjoyed a meteoric rise after only 12 months playing in the A-League.
Rogic has scored five goals in 24 matches for the Mariners and was rewarded for his fine form with a first cap for the Socceroos against South Korea in a November friendly.
However, he attracted headlines for the wrong reasons last month after being handed a three-match ban for a reckless tackle on Sydney midfielder Rhyan Grant.
