Scottish treble winners Celtic have signed Kundai Benyu from Ipswich on a four-year deal.

The much sought-after midfielder joins Brendan Rodgers' side ahead of a host of English clubs and will join his new teammates for pre-season training in Austria later this week.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Celtic. It’s a massive honour to sign for the Scottish champions and one of the world's truly great clubs.

“It’s also a great opportunity for me to continue to develop as a footballer under Brendan Rodgers.

“I’m looking forward to meeting up with my new Celtic team-mates. I know there’s a lot of hard work ahead of me but I am ready for this, I’m looking forward to the challenge and I can’t wait to get started.”

Celtic signed Ireland's Jonny Hayes earlier this month as they look to dominate Scottish football again next season.
