Haksabanovic joins Celtic on five-year-deal

Celtic have signed attacker Sead Haksabanovic from Rubin Kazan on a five-year-deal.

The Montenegro international was wanted by four clubs but has opted for a move to the Scottish Premiership champions.

Haksabanovic, 23, made just two cup appearances during his three-year spell at West Ham from 2017, has most recently been training in Sweden after a loan spell at Djurgarden and did not want to return to Russia.

He becomes Celtic's eight summer signing, with Jota, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Alexandro Bernabei, Aaron Mooy, Benjamin Siegrist, Moritz Jenz and Daizen Maeda also joining.

"It feels amazing," he told Celtic TV. "What I know about Celtic is only good things and I'm very happy to be here.

"I heard about it around a month ago and as soon as I heard that Celtic wanted me I said to my agent that he had to make it happen because this is where I want to play.
