Scottish Premier League champions Celtic are close to sealing a deal for Japanese midfielder Koki Mizuno, who is dubbed the “new Shunsuke Nakamura,” a local newspaper reported Tuesday. “Agreements have been reached with Mizuno’s club JEF United Chiba and the 22-year-old could be a Celtic player within days. Celtic must wait for official clearance before concluding a deal, but Department of Employment officials are scheduled to meet tomorrow to rubber-stamp a work permit,” the Daily Record said.
