Celtic have confirmed the signing of Maryan Shved on a four-and-a-half year deal from Karpaty Lviv.

The Ukraine international will be loaned back to the Ukrainian club for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old underwent a medical on Monday and will remain with his current club until the end of the Ukrainian League season in April.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers admitted earlier in the month that he only knew very little about the winger and says he’s very much one for the future.

The Celtic boss said, according to Daily Record:

“We’ve got about a million wingers and don’t need another one but he’s a talent and in the summer we’ll probably lose wingers and he’ll look to come in.”

Lennon is proud of James Forrest development

The Celtic boss gave Forrest his debut at the team in 2010, and now he's full of praise for the work his footballer has done at the club.

“It’s an opportunity for the club to sign a young talented player but not one that will probably help us now.”

“The club have been in contact with Maryan’s representatives and he’s a talented young player for the future.”

“They’ll look to get the deal done and he’ll probably be out on loan and in during the summer. I haven’t seen a great deal of him.”

“It’s something that’s come to the club through circumstance and he’s been watched and looked at but I can’t say I know a great deal about him.”

“But what I have seen he’s a talent and something that will probably benefit the club in the future.”
