Celtic have agreed a fee with Hapoel Be'er Sheva for Hatem Abd Elhamed, the Israeli club have announced.

The 28-year-old defender, capped once by Israel, will have a medical and wait for the approval of a work permit.

Abd Elhamed, who joined Hapoel Be'er Sheva in August 2017 from Israeli rivals Ashdod, is a right-back but can also play as a centre-half.

He made 27 appearances for the Camels last season as they finished third in Israel's Premier League.

Abd Elhamed has also had spells in Belgium with Charleroi and Gent - and in Romania with Dinamo Bucharest.

Celtic have signed Christopher Jullien, Boli Bolingoli Mbombo and Luca Connell so far this summer.
