Erik Sviatchenko joined Celtic in the January transfer window.

Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko has suggested to Herald Scotland that he is benefitting from joining the Glasgow giants.

The 24-year-old centre-back joined Celtic from Danish club FC Midtjylland in the January transfer window.

Sviatchenko has revealed that he did his research before moving to the Scottish Premiership giants.

The defender has also suggested that playing for Celtic has helped him earn a call-up to the Denmark national team under new head coach Age Hareide.

“I did my research and I knew it was the right step for me,” Sviatchenko told Herald Scotland. “I’m benefitting from it and I’ve been selected for the first squad for the new national coach and I’m thrilled.”

Sviatchenko is a good defender and he has been playing well for Celtic for the past few weeks.

The defender will be key for the Bhoys in their attempt to win the Scottish Premiership title this season.

The 24-year-old is also the future of Celtic, who will be aiming to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League next season.

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 69 points from 30 matches, four points clear of second-placed Aberdeen with a game in hand.
