Fraser Forster has completed his permanent move to Celtic, signing a four year contract with the club.

The goalkeeper, who has spent the last two seasons on loan in the Scottish Premier League, joins from Newcastle United in a pre-agreed £2m deal.

"This is a massive club and I feel like this is a step forward in my career," Forster told Celtic's official website.

"I want to win things as a team and improve as an individual and I think I will be able to do that at Celtic.

"It also gives me a great opportunity to play in the Champions League if we get through the qualifiers.

"I really enjoyed my time in Europe last season so I will be looking forward to it if it happens again.

"I enjoyed last season as a whole and we have a great young squad here. The players and the coaches make it an enjoyable place to be and I like being a part of this team."

Celtic failed in a move to bring Scotland international goalkeeper Craig Gordon back north of the border last week, with the former Sunderland man unable to agree terms on a three-year contract.
