Celtic close deals for 3rd and 4th summer signings


Scottish heavyweights Celtic have, on Thursday, continued to step up the club’s ongoing rebuilding effort under the watch of Ange Postecoglou.

The summer, to date, has seen a trio of arrivals confirmed on the green half of the Glasgow divide.

First up came confirmation of Cameron Carter-Vickers’ loan switch from Tottenham Hotspur being made altogether deservedly permanent, before reinforcements between the posts were too forthcoming in the form of Benjamin Siegrist.

And this set the stage for a 3rd addition to the Bhoys’ ranks being confirmed on Thursday afternoon.

The latest player to have opted to take his talents to Celtic with a view to the 2022/23 campaign? Alexandro Bernabei.

As per a series of announcements across the club’s social media platforms, highly-regarded left-back Bernabei has been secured from Argentine outfit Lanus for a fee in the region of £3.75 million.

The 21-year-old, who has put pen to paper on a five-year contract, had the following to say on the back of his signing being made official:

‘It’s a club that’s used to championships and that’s the main reason why I’ve come to Celtic.’

‘The first thought I had when I heard about interest was that I was very hopeful it was something that going to come to fruition.

‘I was really looking forward to playing for Celtic. I didn’t need to speak to anyone.

‘The transfer was going to happen and I’d already made up my mind that was I going to come, regardless.’

The transfer team at Celtic Park, though, are not done there, it would seem.

As per the Daily Mail, amongst other sources, the Scottish champions are also set to announce a permanent deal for fan favourite Jota imminently.

Portuguese attacker Jota impressed whilst on loan in Glasgow this past season, on his way to a head-turning 13 goals and 14 assists across all competitions.

In turn, it should come as little surprise to hear of Celtic’s plans to take up their option to buy the 23-year-old upon the international transfer market swinging open in the coming hours.

Jota is expected to set the Hoops back a sum of £6.5 million.
