The 23-year-old Swiss International failed to make an impact with the Hammers from Basel last summer for £8m. Now, Neil Lennon will utilise him in attack beside Odsonne Edouard and Patryk Klimala. The fee of £5m appears to be shrewd business by Celtic.
Ex-Celt David Moyes has sanctioned a deal to allow the Swiss striker to switch the London Stadium for the Scottish Champions after just 9 Premier League appearances. Hopefully his time in Glasgow will be like his Basel days (where he scored 37 goals in 75 apps) as opposed to his West Ham ones.
All in all, it is a good signing by Celtic and hopefully the first of a few before Celtic’s next game in the league.
