And the boss got his wish, with Toljan agreeing to join the Scottish champions for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old, who moved to Dortmund from Hoffenheim in 2017, is a former Germany Under-21 international.

He made 17 appearances for Dortmund last term but has seen his game time dry up this season, making only one appearance for the Bundesliga leaders.

“This is an exciting move for me and I’m delighted to be joining a club like Celtic, which has a great reputation throughout Europe,” Toljan said in a statement.

“I’m looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and working with the manager, and I’ll be doing everything I can to help the team to be successful in the remainder of this season.

“I can’t wait to get started and give all I can for this great, iconic club.”

The Scottish Premiership club are expected to make an announcement on Wednesday about the loan deal, according to Fussball Transfers.

The Daily Record reported on Tuesday that negotiations were ongoing between the two clubs and it appears a breakthrough has been made.

The right-back was signed by Dortmund in 2017 for £4.5million but has not made a single appearance under manager Lucien Favre.

Toljan impressed with the Germany squad who won the under-21 Euro Championships in 2017 and put in a particularly impressive display against England in the semi-final.

He is versatile and can be played on either the right or left side of defence.

The Scottish club are also rumoured to be in the hunt for a central defender following an injury to Filip Benkovic.

The Croatian faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in their victory against Hamilton.

Celtic are expected to bring Toljan in on loan but without the option to purchase him outright.
