“There’s a feeling that there’s a decent chance it’ll happen” – Portuguese journalist’s worrying Jota update

Jota to Celtic. It has the potential of turning into another Paddy Roberts hasn’t it!

Right that’s enough of that!

But what is the state of play regarding Celtic sealing the deal to get the Portuguese winger to Paradise permanently?

And will it happen anytime soon?

It’s in the balance according to Portuguese journalist Alex Goncalves:

Jota has been a revelation since joining the Hoops on deadline day and Goncalves reckons the permanent deal could have been done a lot easier if it wasn’t for one major development at Benfica this season:

Jorge Jesus was sacked by The Eagles just before the New Year and the general feeling is that had he remained in charge, the likelihood of Jota ever returning to Benfica was extremely small.

Now that the managerial position has changed, has Jota’s mind?

Celtic fans will certainly hope not.
