The international transfer window opened at midnight, meaning the Hoops can make it all official.

Jota will be the second signing for Celtic this week after the Hoops finalised a deal for left-back Alexandro Bernabei. Ange Postecoglou for the left-back that he wanted and the player is looking forward to the challenges ahead.
