Celtic have announced the signing of Manchester United defender Saidy Janko on a four year deal.
Talks between Celtic, Janko and Manchester United took place last week and over the weekend, with the signing officially being announced on Wednesday afternoon – subject to passing a medical.
In a statement via the official club website, a Celtic spokesperson said: “Celtic Football Club can confirm that it has completed the signing of Saidy Janko from Manchester United on a four year contract, subject to receiving satisfactory medical results which should hopefully be with the Club tomorrow morning.”
Janko signed for United by then-manager David Moyws two years ago for £700,000 from FC Zurich, but only managed one senior appearance for the Old Trafford side in the 4-0 League Cup defeat to MK Dons- playing 45 minutes.
He spent the second half of last season at Bolton under former Celtic manager Neil Lennon – scoring on his debut in the 3-1 win over Fulham.
Janko’s signing means there are now currently four right backs at Celtic – Mikael Lustig, Adam Matthews, Darnell Fisher and now Janko. However Matthews has been linked with a move to QPR recently and Mikael Lustig has had injury worries.
