Celtic have completed the signing of striker Patryk Klimala from Jagiellonia Bialystok.

The Polish forward has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at Celtic Park after Celtic met a £3.4m clause in his contract.

Klimala arrived in Scotland on Sunday and underwent a medical the following day before touring Celtic Park and putting pen to paper on his contract.

The Poland under-21 international adds to Neil Lennon’s attacking options going into the second half of the season, with the team looking to progress in the Europa League as well as defend their Scottish Cup and Premiership titles.

“It’s a big moment for me and I’m very excited,” Klimala told the club’s official website. “I’m very happy to be here at such a massive club.

“The last 24 hours were intense. I was waiting for the decision to be finalised so I could finally come here and meet everyone. I had the chance to see the stadium and I felt the atmosphere. It was amazing so I’m looking forward to playing here in front of the fans. I’m very happy that everything is finished now and looking good.”

Klimala has seven goals from 17 league appearances this season and is likely to be available for Celtic’s Scottish Cup tie against Partick Thistle.
