Celtic have confirmed the signing of Lucas Connell today.

The 18-year-old midfielder becomes the second major signing for the Bhoys, after the club secured the signing of Christopher Jullien yesterday.

A host of clubs including Rangers, Leeds, Wolves and Norwich City were interested in signing the player.
