Celtic set to sign Pawel Brozek


Celtic have agreed terms to sign Pawel Brozek on loan, subject to a medical being passed.

The Polish striker, currently at Trabzonspor, will move to Celtic Park until the end of the season.

Lennon was delighted to acquire Brozek, the Celtic manager said: “He scored a lot of goals in Poland and he will give the squad a jag. I can’t keep relying on Gary Hooper and Stokesy for the goals. If one of them gets injured or suspended, we could be a goalscorer short, and Pawel is a goalscorer.

“His record in Poland is excellent. He’s gone to Trabzonspor and for one reason or another it’s not worked out in terms of the amount of games he’s played. It might because they played a different formation but what we do know is that he’s a goalscorer – right-foot, left-foot, and he can head the ball as well.

“The other good thing about it is that he’s got the European Championships in front of him and he needs to play to stake a claim. It’s in his home country so he will come here very motivated to play and to be successful.

“He’s a bit like Hooper, he’s sharp with good feet, he knows where the goal is and is a bit like Maciej Zurawski when he first came.”

Rangers had been interested in signing the player, but Celtic have beaten their rivals to sign the player.

Lennon added: “I know Rangers were interested but we have been involved with players before and Rangers have nipped in. I am not saying we have nipped in, but we have been tracking him for quite a while. We have tried to keep it under the radar.

Brozek has been capped 32 times for Poland, scoring eight goals. His club career has seen him play 304 times scoring 119 times for Wisla Krakow, LKS Lodz, GKS Katowice and Trabzonspor.
