Celtic have completed the signing of Filipe Jota from Benfica on a loan deal with an option to buy. The winger is manager Ange Postecoglou’s eleventh signing as Celtic revamp the squad after the disappointment of last season. The winger spent the whole of last season at Real Valleloid where he scored just one goal in 17 appearances. He has not made a single appearance in the league this season. The Scottish club can make the move permanent for just over £6m.
“I am very happy to join such a historic and exciting team as Celtic.” Filipe Jota said after joining Celtic on loan. “Having played in Portugal and Spain, everyone knows that Celtic is a huge name across Europe and a club with real heart and soul.”
“It will be a pleasure and an honor to fight for this club and I can’t wait to feel the atmosphere from our supporters at Paradise,” he added. “I know the manager wants us to play fast, attacking football, the way it should be played and, I can’t wait to play my part in this. I will work hard to do all I can to make the fans happy and enjoy some good times together.”
Celtic have also completed the signing of Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan from Tottenham with an option to buy.
“I am absolutely delighted to agree on this move to Celtic, it is a really exciting opportunity for me and I am desperate to meet my new teammates and get going for the season ahead,” he said. “I know I am going to a huge club which means so much to so many people and I will be doing all I can to bring our fans the success which their support deserves.”
