Celtic have added another impressive talent to their ranks.

New Celtic signing Saidy Janko has been speaking to Celtic TV about his first training session with the club and meeting his new teammates.

The 19-year-old Swiss right-back signed for the Bhoys from Manchester United earlier this month, agreeing a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Janko arrived at Old Trafford back in 2013, becoming one of only three signings made by former United manager David Moyes, and given his reputation and talent it is surprising the Premier League club allowed him to leave so soon.

That said, Celtic have bagged a bargain and he should blossom under the tutelage of Bhoys manager Ronny Deila.

Janko recently got his first taste of training under the Norwegian and when asked how it felt he told Celtic TV, “Very good; it was intense. I haven’t trained for a month now but it was good. I didn’t do all of the session but I feel good, I feel fit, ready to go.

“I met almost everyone; I’m not good with names but they welcomed me.”

Janko joins Dedryck Boyata as a new arrival at the recent double winners and he is unlikely to be the last fresh face at the club before the transfer window closes.

Deila showed last season that young players get a chance at Celtic if they are good enough, with former loanee Jason Denayer the prime example, and now it is up to Janko to prove he can follow suit.
