CELTIC are on the verge of sealing a deal for Joe Hart.
SunSport understands talks with the Spurs keeper are now at an advanced stage.
The Hoops could land former England No 1 Hart, 34, in the coming days.
He is expected to arrive in Glasgow within the next 24 hours.
New Celts boss Ange Postecoglou targeted him after shaky displays from Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain in recent weeks.
Greek flop Barkas was axed following a costly mistake in the 1-1 Champions League draw with Midtjylland.

EURO TRIP Celtic draw AZ Alkmaar in Europa League play-off round
Bain took his place for the second leg in Denmark but was unable to stop Celts crashing to defeat.
He was then at fault for Hearts’ late winner in Saturday’s Premiership loss.
Postecoglou now wants a vocal, experienced presence between the sticks — and Hart fits the bill.
He was with Manchester City for 12 years and won every major English honour, including two Premier League titles.

Hart also spent close to a decade in the England set-up and was part of two World Cup squads.
Pep Guardiola’s arrival at City in 2016 saw him lose his No 1 spot.
He had spells at Torino, West Ham and Burnley before being thrown a lifeline by Jose Mourinho.
But new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo won’t stand in Hart’s way if he wants to go.
Celtic can offer regular first-team football and the goalie is now on the brink of a switch to Parkhead.
Meanwhile, the Hoops have made a move for Shamrock Rovers defender Liam Scales.
The 22-year-old is also being tracked by English clubs after impressing in the League of Ireland.
But Celts could land versatile left-sided defender Scales for a significant six- figure fee.
SunSport understands talks have opened, but a deal could be delayed until after Rovers’ next European tie against KF Teuta Durres on Thursday.
Scales had a trial stint at Man City in 2019 and has blossomed in the last 18 months with the Irish champions.
Capable of playing as a centre-half, full-back or wing-back, his versatility appeals to the Hoops.
