TIMOTHY WEAH is set to snub a late offer from Amiens to seal a loan deal with Celtic.

The French side have launched a last-gasp bid to hijack USA hitman Weah’s six-month move to Celts.

But SunSport understands the Hoops are the striker’s preferred choice should PSG give the green light to the deal.

Talks are continuing, with Weah, 18, currently in Liberia with father George M. Weah , who is president of the African country.

Weah is keen on a switch to Celtic and hopes to arrive in Glasgow for a medical next week if all goes to plan.

Yet that still hasn’t put off Amiens boss Christophe Pelissier, who made a personal plea to Weah to join his strugglers.

French sources claim Pelissier made a call earlier this week in a bid to talk the attacker round.

But barring a last-minute change of heart, Weah could join Celtic in time for their Dubai winter training camp.

PSG chiefs see the benefit of a stint in Glasgow for the youngster after Odsonne Edouard had a successful loan spell before his £10million move to Celts.

But unlike Edouard, there would be NO option to make the deal permanent.

Weah, who has eight caps for the USA, is viewed as one for the future by PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

PSG only want to loan him for the rest of the season before bringing him back for the final year of his deal.

Meanwhile, Celtic face a battle trying to convince Timothy Castagne to swap Italy for Scotland.
