Celtic have announced the signing of Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata on a four-year deal.
The 24-year-old Belgium international struggled to make an impact at the Etihad Stadium, playing just 11 times in the Premier League in three seasons at the club.
Boyata arrived in Glasgow on Sunday to complete a deal set to be with around £1.5 million.
After speaking to Celtic boss Ronny Deila's Boyata was convinced Celtic was the right move for him.
"The manager came to see me in Manchester and I spoke to him about having me here and all the ideas he had for me playing for the team," he was quoted saying by BBC Sport.
"So I was very pleased with his plans and from that point I thought that moving to Celtic would be a good idea and we tried to do everything right for me to move here.”
Speaking to Celtic's website, he described the Scottish Premiership champions as "a very big club".
In his time at City Boyata enjoyed loan spells at Bolton Wanders and FC Twente before joint Celtic.
Boyata will replace former team-mate and fellow countryman Jason Denayer at Celtic, as Denayer will return to City after completing his season-long loan in Scotland.
