CELTIC are delighted to confirm that Polish internationalist Pawel Brozek has joined the club on loan from Trabzonspor until the end of the season, with Celtic having the option to make the move a permanent one.
The 28-year-old striker is another top-quality addition to Neil Lennon´s squad during this transfer window and will provide additional fire-power to the Hoops.
Pawel´s fellow countryman, Jaroslaw Fojut has signed a pre-contract agreement with the club and will move to Celtic Park in the summer, while Swedish internationalist Mikael Lustig and highly-rated Nigerian playmaker, Rabiu Ibrahim are already part of the first-team squad.
Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website after completing his move to the Hoops, Pawel said: "I’m very happy because Celtic were very determined to sign me and it didn’t take a long time. I spoke with Lukasz Zaluska and Maciej Zurawski and they said only positive things about the club. So when I heard there was an offer from Celtic I wanted to go straight away.
“They said the fans are fantastic here, the top organisation of the club, and the great name the club has in the world. It’s all happened very quickly. It was a really nice surprise because it’s a big club and a big name in Europe.
"It’s a very nice city and a great place to play football. And there is a very good manager and coach. The team is very good and there are excellent training facilities.
“I knew before I signed about the club’s history, and the kind of pressure to win every game and the championship, so the history, the fans and the team and the determination of the club to bring me here were all reasons why I came.
“It’s also important that we have won so many games in the last couple of months and there are also plenty of chances to score. But I don’t like to speak about myself. I would rather show what I can do on the park and will try to do the best I can for the club."
The Polish internationalist will be officially unveiled at a media conference tomorrow.
