TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Iran-born, 19-year-old Australia international signed for Manchester City from Melbourne City on Thursday morning, with his Celtic move expected to be confirmed imminently.

Manchester City, who is parent club to Melbourne, says Arzani will be sent out on loan 'to progress his career'.

Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers said they hope to complete the deal 'in the next few days'.

The Premier League transfer window closed on Thursday at 17:00 BST, but the transfer window remains open in Scotland until 31 August.

Rodgers added: 'We are hopeful. He has completed on the Man City side and I think most of it is virtually complete on our side.

'He hasn't done anything since his last game for Australia, and that is a little while back. So he is going to have to come in and adjust and get up to speed and adapt, and get some hard work in before we can consider him for a game.'
