The transfer dispute involving Celtic winger Sead Haksabanovic and two of his old clubs, Rubin Kazan and IFK Norrkoping, continues to rumble on.

Russian side Rubin reportedly still owe a percentage of the fee they paid for the Montenegro international to sign him from Norrkoping.

He made the move in 2021 for a reported £5.5million but departed after only a year due to the invasion of Ukraine.

According to reports, the Russian club still owe Norrkoping up to £3.2m and the case has been taken to FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

It is an issue that has been ongoing since the 23-year-old arrived at Parkhead. Celtic remain materially uninvolved - nor is the transfer to Glasgow itself the subject of any complaint.

Norrkoping are now set to look to the Chamber of Commerce to bypass the European Union sanctions against Russia and end the row.

This is according to outlet SVT, which claims this process would allow the payment to be made by Rubin despite EU regulations.

Norrkoping chairman Sakarias Mardh previously gave his thoughts on the matter, saying: "Basically 2022 was a good year, before we had reserved this fee we were in profit.

"The reservation is not part of the operation but a precaution we are taking while this is being processed by Fifa and CAS."
