Some nine months after being an MLS first round draft pick, goalkeeper Dominic Cervi looks set to reap the rewards for passing up a minimum salary contract offer from MLS.

Cervi is set to sign a three-year deal with Celtic FC. The 6-foot-6 goalkeeper is seen as a candidate to back-up Polish international Artur Boruc.

Cervi went on trial with Celtic earlier this summer and has been working on trying to secure an Italian passport through his Italian family background, which would allow him to secure the work permit necessary to play for the Scottish powerhouse.

The University of Tulsa product has not been on a professional roster since being drafted by the Chicago Fire with the No. 12 pick in the MLS Draft. His status as a free agent would allow him to sign with Celtic despite the European transfer window being closed.
