Celtic have completed the signing of Luis Palma.

The 23-year-old joins from Aris Thessaloniki in Greece for an undisclosed fee.

The Honduran international, signed as a replacement for Jota, has penned a five-year deal.

Speaking to the official Celtic website about his move Palma said: “I could not be any happier with today’s news.

“It is a very special day for me and an honour to be announced as a Celtic player. I can’t wait to be part of this great club, a club I know all about as one of the great names in world football.

“I know that Celtic always aims to play football the right way, a team that entertains and has a pedigree of winning and delivering success, and this is what I want to be part of.

“I have spoken to the manager and I'm really looking forward to joining him and my team-mates and starting my journey with such a brilliant club.

“I have already had so many messages of support and I thank all our fans for the welcome I have been given.

“I can’t wait to play in front of the Celtic supporters and I will do all I can to bring our fans good football and some good moments.”

Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers added: “We are really pleased to bring Luis to the Club. He is a player who had a lot of options but, of course, we are delighted he has chosen to come to Celtic, an opportunity which really excites him.

“He is a very talented, player who likes to play attacking football so we hope he will be a very good fit for the team.

“Luis has reached a very good level so far, playing a lot of games and achieving international recognition, but I also know that he is ambitious to improve and continue his development with us.

“We look forward to Luis joining up with the squad and to start working with him.”
