Celtic have signed forward Albian Ajeti from West Ham.

The Swiss striker has penned a four-year deal with the Scottish champions after a £5m fee was agreed.

Ajeti bolsters manager Neil Lennon’s options in attack after Vakoun Bayo departed for Toulouse on loan earlier in the week.

The 23-year-old was snapped up by West Ham in 2019 after scoring 29 goals in 58 games for Basel in his homeland.

But Ajeti was unable to replicate his goalscoring exploits in London, failing to find the net last season across 12 runouts.
