The former Celtic loanee now has a new club and it will be interesting to see how he does there.

Former Celtic loanee John Guidetti has completed his move to Spanish side Celta Vigo.

The La Liga club confirmed the news on their official Twitter account on Saturday afternoon, putting to bed the questions regarding the Swedish front-man’s future.

Guidetti left Manchester City at the end of his contract and he has been a free agent since, meaning Celta Vigo have bagged something of a bargain.

The 23-year-old only ever made one senior appearance for City despite his talent in front of goal. Instead he made his name through a series of loan spells, with his time at Feyenoord and later Celtic the most notable.

Guidetti scored 15 goals and provided 12 assists in 30 matches for the Bhoys last season – an impressive record by anyone’s standards – but the second half of the campaign was considerably less impressive than the first and he ultimately moved back to City and then on to Spain.

Celtic fans will not be complaining, having recently seen their club seal the signing of Nadir Ciftci, but they may well keep half an eye on how Guidetti performs in Spain.

He really needs a club that he can call a home, and perhaps after something of a journeyman’s existence to date, Celta will be just that.
