24 year-old agrees pre-contract deal at Parkhead.
Celtic have signed Polish defender Jaroslaw Fojut on a pre-contract deal.
The 24 year-old will join the Clydesdale Bank Premier League side in the summer from Polish league leaders Slask Wroclaw, having played previous stints in the UK with Bolton Wanderers, Luton Town and Stockport County.
Indeed, it was Bhoys manager Neil Lennon who instigated the move, having remembered playing a tough game against Fojut.
“I actually played against him when he was on loan at Luton for Nottingham Forest, and often wondered what happened to him,” recalled Lennon, “as he was on loan from Bolton at the time and I was really impressed by him.
“So John Park and myself got talking, and his name came up again. We did a bit of homework on him since then, and I think he’s been in excellent form for his club this year and on the verge of international recognition. To get him on a pre-contract is a good bit of business again for the club.
“He’s strong, technically good, quick, and he’s very good in the air. At 24, he’s at a good age. He had a bad injury and was out of football for around a year but it looks like he’s come back stronger than ever, and I’m pleased with the signing.
“I think his all-round game is very good. He has been playing at a decent level of football from a young age but what I like about him is his physical qualities. He already knows the British game, so I don’t think it will take him too long to adapt to the rigours of Scottish football.”
