Celtic sign Borussia Dortmund defender Toljan on loan

Celtic have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund right-back Jeremy Toljan on loan until the end of the season. 

Toljan, a defender with Champions League experience, will add necessary depth to a position the club have been trying to improve in the January transfer window.

The Scottish champions announced the signing on transfer deadline day, just hours before the window closed.

The 24-year-old expressed his delight upon signing for the Hoops on Thursday:

“This is an exciting move for me and I’m delighted to be joining a club like Celtic, which has a great reputation throughout Europe.’’ He told Celtic’s official website.

“I’m looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and working with the manager, and I’ll be doing everything I can to help the team to be successful in the remainder of this season.

“I can’t wait to get started and give all I can for this great, iconic club.”

A former u21 international with Germany, Toljan has made 23 senior appearances for Borussia Dortmund.
