    If this trend continues our fans' sleeping patterns are going to be * during transfer windows, staying up waiting for the announcements. :56:

    Benfica winger Jota has agreed a four-year deal to join Celtic on a permanent basis.

    Jota was at Celtic Park on Thursday to finalise terms on a four-year contract after telling Benfica he wanted to stay at Celtic; the Portuguese winger moved to Glasgow on loan and scored 13 goals in his first season at Celtic Park.

    Celtic had been waiting for the player to arrive back from holiday to finalise personal terms and Jota was at Celtic Park on Thursday night to commit his future to the Scottish champions.

    The 23-year-old had previously told Benfica he wished to remain at Celtic after initially joining on loan in the summer.

    Jota played a key part in Celtic's double-winning side - contributing to 27 goals across all competitions as Ange Postecoglou's side won the league and League Cup.

    The Hoops triggered the £6.3m option-to-buy clause and agreed terms with Benfica last month. Benfica will retain 30 per cent of any future transfer fee generated should Celtic decide to sell Jota.

    What does Jota bring to Celtic?


    It comes as no surprise that Celtic fans are desperate for the Portuguese star to join the club on a permanent deal after such an impressive loan spell.

    The winger has not only shown he has an eye for goal but his pace, skill and movement has been a real handful for defences to deal with.

    To score 13 goals and also make 14 assists across all competitions during your first season at a new club will give supporters hope there is even more to come once Jota has a full pre-season under him.

    The deadline-day arrival has bought into Celtic's approach under Postecoglou of being relentless with the ball and without it, and, if the early signs are anything to go by, the fans have every right to be excited for what is to come.

    Delighted, hes some player and should only get better. Some of the skill he pulls off with the ball at his feet is mesmerising at times, and hes got an end product that will get better. Hopefully get at least two years from him

    Would imagine it would have been signed late last night as his loan and clause probably ran out at midnight

    municated to Benfica the lifting of Jota's OA. The Glasgow club will pay €7.5m for 75% of the player's rights. Good luck for the rest of your career, little prince. You deserved better with us

    Celtic PR team slow on this....maybe they are waiting to also announce Souza so we can see a Brazil/Portuguese Samba marketing push to light up the place.

    More likely they were waiting to see if he came back after his round the world bender looking like Morelos.
