An un-named Qatar club are said to have bid around £4m for the 27 year old Aussie who signed for Celtic in Scotland seven years ago.

He spent his first season on loan to Melbourne Victory but went on to make more than 120 appearances for the Scottish champions, scoring 25 goals and becoming a fan favourite for key strikes against city rivals, Rangers.

But he has struggled for game time over the past two seasons, especially since Neil Lennon returned to the helm at the Bhoys, and a series of niggling injuries have also robbed him of starts.

Now he is reportedly set to move to the Middle East ahead of the Qatar World Cup in 2022 and needing match minutes to keep his Socceroos spot.

The Daily Mail claims an announcement on the deal will be made within the next 24 hours.
