Celtic seal Deadline Day deal for Benfica's Bernardo

Celtic have signed Benfica midfielder Paulo Bernardo on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

He becomes Brendan Rodgers' third signing in a matter of days following the arrivals of Nat Phillipsand Luis Palma.

The 21-year-old, who has represented Portugal at U21 level, is a graduate of Benfica's youth system, and made his first-team debut in a Champions League group-stage game against Bayern Munich.

He has made 23 appearances for the Primeira Liga side and spent the second half of last season on loan at Portuguese side, Pacos Ferreira.

Bernardo - who will wear the number 28 jersey - said: "I'm very excited to be here. It's a great club and I'm ready to be on the pitch and to help the team.
