ARTUR Boruc wants a pay-off from Celtic before he agrees to his £3million transfer to Fiorentina.
The Serie A club and Celtic agreed a fee on Monday morning and it was expected the Polish keeper would fly straight to Italy to thrash out personal terms with Fiorentina.
But its believed that Boruc's representatives have told Celtic they want a "loyalty payment" before he agrees to switch to Italy.
The amount of money involved isn't clear but could be in the region of £700,000.
And the 30-year-old has yet to fly to Florence to meet his new club which has upset the Italian side.
Boruc, who cost Celtic £650,000 in 2005, was due to earn around £32,000 per week from Celts for the final 11 months on his contract.
That added to the transfer fee means Celtic stand to gain around £4.5m from his departure and Boruc feels he wants a slice of the profit.
It's a request that has now become common place from players and it will be up to the Celtic powerbrokers if they agree to give Boruc a pay-off.
A source close to the deal said: "At the moment, there is a stand-off but some form of compromise is expected to be reached in the next 48 hours."
