Celtic sign Premier League defender on season-long loan deal

Celtic have announced the signing of Shane Duffy on a season-long loan from Brighton.

The Republic of Ireland defender has moved to link up with the reigning Scottish Premiership champions having fallen out of favour with the Seagulls towards the end of last season.

“I really am delighted to sign this deal with Celtic,” Duffy said in the club statement announcing his arrival.

“It is a huge honour for me to join Celtic, such a huge institution and a brilliant football club that I have always loved and admired.”

Celtic boss Neil Lennon told the club’s website: “We are delighted to bring a player of Shane’s quality to Celtic. He is an international player with so many great attributes. He is leader and he’s a warrior – someone with real ability and who will also give us that great physical presence.

‘Coup for the club’

“I know too he is a player who will add great personality to the dressing room. This is a real coup for the club. From the off, Shane wanted to come to Celtic and we are delighted we have been able to fend off English Premier League interest.

“We are delighted with Shane’s decision to come and I am delighted with the business which Nick Hammond and the board have done, not only in bringing Shane to Celtic, but throughout the window.

“We can’t wait to get Shane involved in the squad as we look to the many challenges ahead.”
