    Daniel Arzani signs for Celtic on two-year loan deal

    By: Newsroom Staff on 17 Aug, 2018 11:01

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that Australian internationalist, Daniel Arzani, has joined the club on a two-year loan deal from Manchester City, subject to international clearance.

    The highly-rated 19-year-old, who played for his country at the recent World Cup tournament in Russia, made the move from Melbourne City to Manchester City, but will now spend the next two years at Paradise.

    And the attacking midfielder is looking forward to pulling on the green and white Hoops and helping the team in the campaigns ahead.

    Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, the Australian player said: “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.”

    Daniel Arzani will link up with his fellow countryman, Tom Rogic, who has become a well-established and key member of the Celtic squad, recently signing a new deal that will see him remain at the club until at least the summer of 2023.

    And the new Bhoy revealed that he had spoken to Rogic ahead of the move to Paradise.

    “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.”
