Celtic have been busy in the transfer market already, and now have a third new signing with them at their training camp in Dubai.

After losing 1-0 to Rangers last time out, Celtic headed off to Dubai for some warm weather training during Scottish football's winter break.

 

Brendan Rodgers has been putting his players through their paces for a 'mini pre-season' ahead of their return to domestic action, with Celtic having plenty to do in the Scottish Premiership.

Rodgers has also been adding new talent to his squad; winger Oliver Burke and forward Timothy Weah arrived on loan from West Bromwich Albion and Paris Saint-Germain respectively, before heading out to join their new Celtic teammates in Dubai.

A third deal went through on Tuesday, as Celtic snapped up Ivorian striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo from Slovakian side Dunajska Streda, after hitting 18 goals and seven assists in just 23 games this term.

Bayo celebrated his 22nd birthday just days ago, but after a small break – helped as he has been suspended in Slovakia lately – he has now headed to Dubai too.

Bayo posted a photo on his Instagram story from Dubai marina, meaning he has touched down and should be with Celtic's squad imminently, meaning his Celtic career is about to begin for real in the coming hours, as he will meet teammates and begin training ahead of a Bhoys debut.
