Celtic have confirmed the signing of Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata.

The Parkhead club issued a press release which revealed 24-year-old Belgium international will be presented at a media conference at Celtic Park at lunchtime.

Boyata, who flew into Glasgow on Sunday, is manager Ronny Deila's first summer signing.

He should replace fellow Belgian Jason Denayer, who was on loan from Manchester City, while Deila is keen to keep PFA Player of the Year nominee Virgil van Dijk.
