Bari claim they have reached an agreement with Celtic regarding Massimo Donati.
The 28-year-old then moved to Scotland in 2007 and helped Celtic to the SPL title in his first season at Parkhead. However, he fell out of favour under Gordon Strachan and was tipped to be on the move during the 2009 January transfer window.
Celtic have now accepted an approach from Bari for his services and he is expected to be on his way back to Italy before the summer window slams shut.
“Celtic have accepted Bari’s offer for the transfer of midfielder Massimo Donati,” read a statement released by Bari.
“The contract formalities will be completed on Friday.
“The player has agreed a four-year deal and he is expected in Bari on Monday.”
