Chris Sutton's protracted transfer situation seems set to be resolved with a move to Celtic after a medical in the next day or so. Chelsea had reached agreement with Celtic over an initial £6 million fee rising in stages to a possible £10 million depending on the player and clubs performance. The decision lay with Sutton and he now seems set to confirm he has decided to join Martin O'Neill at the Glasgow club.

If the deal goes through as expected it will end an unhappy one season spell at Chelsea which never really worked out for player or club. With the signing of 25 million pounds worth of attacking options for next season Sutton's future at the club seemed to have been set and he will hope Celtic suits him better.

Martin O'Neill said "Chris is coming up on Monday for his medical, we will have the results of that by the same evening and I would expect him to fly out and join us on Tuesday."

Chris Sutton is no longer a Chelsea player. His contract was discontinued this morning and he was de-registered as a Chelsea player. He therefore, on Celtic's confirmation, would appear to have passed their medical and has completed his signing with the Glasgow club and is now a Celtic player. The initial £6 million fee, rising to £10 million depending on performance, closes an unhappy period for the striker and one where he didn't fulfill the hoped for role of supplying Chelsea with the firepower they have been missing in recent seasons. Lets hope the arrival of Hasselbaink, Gudjohnsen and Stanic will fare rather better.

Comment- I can't belive they paid £6mill!! I also have a feeling, that he'll score like 25 goals for Celtic. Anyway, farewell.

Maybe Celtic thinks Sutton will bag 30 goals in a season in the Scottish Leaegue :)

Then be bought back to the EPL for a huge sum, and suck sh*t again, hopefully Prem clubs won't fall for it :)
