Celta Vigo to sign Lazio's Riza Durmisi on loan

Celta Vigo are on the verge of announcing the double signing of Lazio full-back Riza Durmisi and Jairo Riedewald from Crystal Palace.

Durmisi joined Lazio this summer from Real Betis but has played just 60 minutes of Serie A action this season, where he has not started a match.

The Denmark international will join the Galician side on loan until the end of the season and follows Junior Alonso’s exit to Boca Juniors.

Celta will include a purchase option on Durmisi’s deal and Palace’s Riedewald – who can play in defence or midfield – will join him at Balaidos.

The versatile Dutch player has not featured for the South London club in the Premier League this season, having joined from Ajax in 2017.
