Celtic announce signing of Josip Juranovic on five-year deal ahead of St Mirren clash

CELTIC have announced an agreement has been reached to sign Croatian defender Josip Juranovic.

The right-back is set to make the move to Parkhead on a five-year deal when international clearance comes through after an agreement for the transfer from Legia Warsaw.

The signing provides much needed depth in the right full-back position with only Anthony Ralston currently on the books.

Juranovic, 26, will join the rest of the squad early next week.

“We have so many challenges ahead of us and Josip will add important quality and depth. I am really looking forward to working with him.”
