Celtic have finalised a two year loan deal from Manchester City for Socceroo Daniel Arzani, subject to international clearance paperwork.
The 19-year-old wonder kid who lit up Australia World Cup campaign in Russia 2018, made the move from Melbourne City to Manchester City, but will now spend the next two years at Parkhead.
And the attacking midfielder said he's looking forward to pulling on the green and white Hoops and helping the team in the campaigns ahead.
Speaking to the club website, Arzani said: “Celtic is a massive club with a great history and one of the best followings in the world, so I’m looking forward to getting started.
“The idea was put to me to come to Celtic and work with Brendan Rodgers, and it was something I was very interested in doing, and when it became a reality, I was very excited.
“I’ve had a couple of chats with the manager, more about when I’m coming and when I’ll get started, but I’ll have more chats with him after I settle into the club. But, for me, it’s about coming here, doing the best that I can and helping the club as much as possible.”
Arzani will link up with fellow Aussie Tom Rogic, who has become a key member of the Celtic squad and recently signed a new deal that will see him stay at the club until 2023.
The new Bhoy revealed that he spoke to Rogic ahead of the move to Paradise.
“I gave Tom a call and had a chat with him about the club and everything was positive,”Arzani said. “Basically he said to me that if it wasn’t so good, he wouldn’t have signed an extension to stay at Celtic Park.
"Apparently, playing in front of the Celtic fans is absolutely amazing and I’m really excited about that.
“All of Celtic’s home games look absolutely amazing. The scenes at the game are unbelievable, and I love it when the crowd gets behind me. I’m an attacking player.
"I love to take players on and hopefully I can bring some of that to the team.”
