Published Add your comment

Celtic have confirmed the signing of Victor Wanyama.

The 20-year-old had signed a four-year contract with the Hoops following their successful appeal to the Scottish Football Association over his work permit on Friday.

And Celtic confirmed he would be joining them after he passed a medical.

Wanyama, who has been signed as a defender following his near £1million move from Germinal Beerschot, told the club's official website: "I am delighted to sign for Celtic Football Club. With the formalities now out of the way, I can look forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and manager on their return from Australia.

"It has always been a dream of mine to play for a club like Celtic.

"After reading the club's incredible history I have chosen 67 as my squad number to show appreciation to the 1967 squad.

"My ambition at Celtic is to win many trophies like the Lisbon Lions."
