Sligo Rovers ace Johnny Kenny is expected to complete a move to Celtic.

The 18-year old was one of the breakout stars in last season’s SSE Airtricity Premier Division and scored 11 goals for the Bit O’Red as they finished in third place.

He later went on to make his debut for the Ireland U19s and also completed his Leaving Cert last summer whilst playing for Rovers.

The striker was also watched by Hibernian but is expected to now complete a move to the Hoops for a fee of €150,000, which is the release clause in Kenny’s contract at his hometown club.

Sligo could benefit further from the transfer as they understood to be negotiating add-ons based on future performances.
