Nigeria international defender Efe Ambrose might be heading to China in the winter transfer window following a bid from Shanghai SIPG.
The coach of the team Sven Goran Eriksson is an admirer of the qualities of the 27 year old and backed by cash from Shanghai Port Group a deal might not be impossible.
However the team who were runners-up in the Chinese Super League last season are not having a clear run for his services as three other Chinese teams are also weighing up a move for him.
Ambrose has returned to the starting line up at Celtic following injury to Dedryck Boyata but the club will still be willing to let go of the Nigerian if they succeed in their quest to sign Aleksander Pantic of Eibar.
He has 18 months left on his contract and unlike the past when they rejected bids from Olympiakos and Maccabi Tel Aviv they appear willing to sell but only at the right price.
