Celtic have completed a two-year loan deal for Australia and Manchester City midfielder Daniel Arzani.

The 19-year-old impressed for his country at the World Cup finals in Russia, where he was the youngest player in the tournament, and recently moved from Melbourne City to the Etihad Stadium.

The attacking midfielder told Celtic's official website: "Celtic is a massive club with a great history and one of the best followings in the world, so I'm looking forward to getting started.

"The idea was put to me to come to Celtic and work with Brendan Rodgers, and it was something I was very interested in doing, and when it became a reality, I was very excited.

"I've had a couple of chats with the manager, more about when I'm coming and when I'll get started, but I'll have more chats with him after I settle into the club. But, for me, it's about coming here, doing the best that I can and helping the club as much as possible."

Arzani will link up with international team-mate Tom Rogic, who signed a new five-year contract at Celtic Park towards the end of last season.

"I gave Tom a call and had a chat with him about the club and everything was positive," Arzani said.

"Basically he said to me that if it wasn't so good, he wouldn't have signed an extension to stay at Celtic Park. Apparently, playing in front of the Celtic fans is absolutely amazing and I'm really excited about that.

"All of Celtic's home games look absolutely amazing. The scenes at the game are unbelievable, and I love it when the crowd gets behind me. I'm an attacking player. I love to take players on and hopefully I can bring some of that to the team."

Celtic have smashed their transfer record to land Odsonne Edouard on a permanent deal from Paris St Germain.

The Hoops are reported to have splashed out £9million to secure the 20-year-old Frenchman on a four-year deal.

Edouard spent last season on loan with Brendan Rodgers' side, scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances as the club secured their second straight domestic treble.

He told the Celtic website: "From the moment I walked into Celtic, the club has felt like home to me. I have been made to feel so welcome by everyone at the club and our fans have given me such brilliant support.

"Celtic is one of the world's great football clubs and I was desperate to make my move permanent. The scenes from May when we achieved such a historic double treble and made the city come alive are still very fresh in our memories.

"To see our fans so happy is the reason you play football and now we want to do everything we can to bring our great supporters even more success."
