Celtic manager Neil Lennon has expressed delight over securing goalkeeper Fraser Forster on a permanent deal.

Celtic have confirmed Forster has signed a four-year contract, although the player himself had already done so earlier in the week. Forster has spent the last two seasons on loan at Celtic Park from Newcastle but the end of his long-running saga over his permanent transfer confirms the club's first summer signing.

Lennon told the club's official website: "We are delighted that Fraser has committed his future to the club and we believe he will be a magnificent addition to the squad."
