  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that Erik Sviatchenko has joined the club on a four-and-a-half year deal from FC Midtjylland.

    The highly-rated Danish internationalist, who had attracted a lot of interest from a number of top clubs, chose the Scottish champions and becomes the latest addition to Ronny Deila’s squad.

    Erik has already gained four caps for Denmark and scored one goal against France in October last year.

    And the 24-year-old defender also helped FC Midtjylland reach the last 32 of this season’s UEFA Europa League, where they will play Manchester United next month.

    But Erik has opted to join Celtic and help the Hoops in their bid for the treble in this campaign.

    Speaking exclusively to the official website, Erik said: “I am so happy to join Celtic, such a fantastic club and such a huge name in football. This is a club with a wonderful pedigree and a massive support.

    “I will do everything I can to bring success to Celtic. It means so much to me to join a winning club, to join a club that goes for and wins trophies and wants to play in the Champions League. 

    “I have had a taste of winning with Midtjylland and I want more of this feeling at Celtic. When you play football, you want to be remembered for winning and I want to be remembered as a winner with Celtic.

    “I know we have a squad of really talented players and I can’t wait to get started, team up with them and get to work.”
