Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Coventry striker Leon Clarke, which in turn opens the door for Celtic to sign Leigh Griffiths.
Wolves eventually agreed a £750,000 fee with League One side Coventry City for the 28-year-old striker who has netted 18 goals so-far this season.
Clarke has signed an 18-month contract after passing a late night medical at Molinuex on Wednesday.
The deal of course sees Clarke go full circle during his 11 year career.
After coming through the youth system at Wolves in 2003, Clarke made 83 appearances during his first stint at the club scoring 15 goals.
He's gone on to play either on loan or permanently for 14 other clubs, making a total of 229 appearances scoring 79 goals.
However 39 of those 79 goals have come since September 2012 in just 60 appearances for Scunthorpe and Coventry, making him one of the most inform strikers in the lower leagues.
The deal for Clarke, is likely to see Griffiths leave Molineux with Scottish champions Celtic heavily interested.
They have already had two bids rejected by Wolves, the second coming in at under half of Wolves evaluation of £1.25 million.
"There`s no further movement and we`ll see what happens Thursday and Friday. Whether we go back again is something we`ll have to consider over the next couple of days.' Celtic manager Neil Lennon told the Daily Record.
He continued: "I don`t get involved in negotiations. Peter Lawwell does that but we`ll speak again and see where we go. You always have other options for similar positions and we`re looking at them.
"I`m not saying the deal is dead by any means but we do have other people in mind, not just for that position but also for others."
