Celta smash record fee for Emre Mor

Celta Vigo are set to smash their transfer record to land Borussia Dortmund winger Emre Mor for a deal which could reach up to €25m.

The 20-year-old jetted into the Galician city on Monday night to sign a five-year deal with Celta ahead of a transfer which will go through for an initial €13m.

The winger is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in Europe and joined Dortmund a year ago from Danish side Nordsjælland but featured only 19 times last season.

Celta have already tied up deals for Jozabed, Stanislav Lobotka and Maxi Gomez – who has scored three goals in two appearances – but have lost their opening two La Liga games by the odd goal.

Mor is likely to vie for a starting position at Estadio Balaidos against Pione Sisto and Iago Aspas, with the Uruguayan Gomez expected to continue in his striking role.
