Hibs man on his way to Parkhead.
Celtic have made their 11th signing of the summer transfer window. The Parkhead club have secured the signature of Anthony Stokes from Hibernian.
The deal was completed on Tuesday when Stokes completed a medical before travelling to Celtic Park to put pen to paper on a four-year deal. The clubs had agreed a transfer fee that could rise to £1.2 million for the 22-year old.
The Irishman will be unveiled as a Celtic player on Tuesday afternoon.
Stokes came through the ranks at Arsenal and was a huge hit while on loan at Falkirk in the 2006-07 season. He subsequently moved to Sunderland but failed to hold down a starting place and was sent out to Sheffield United and Crystal Palace on loan. (STV)
Dublin born striker Stokes had a breakthrough season at Easter Road last term when he netted 21 goals last term and all summer he has been linked with a move away from the Edinburgh club and now a deal has been done to bring the pint sized lethal finisher to Parkhead and it’s a move that will greatly please Bhoys boss Neill Lennon.
The former Arsenal man was beginning to gather dust at Sunderland when Hibs took the 22 year old last summer and proved an instant success. A move to Celtic is said to be a dream come true for the youngster and I would imagine he could well be a big success at the Glasgow side.
