Celtic have smashed their transfer record to land Odsonne Edouard on a permanent deal from Paris St Germain.

The Hoops are reported to have splashed out £9million to secure the 20-year-old Frenchman on a four-year deal.

Edouard spent last season on loan with Brendan Rodgers' side, scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances as the club secured their second straight domestic treble.

He told the Celtic website: "From the moment I walked into Celtic, the club has felt like home to me. I have been made to feel so welcome by everyone at the club and our fans have given me such brilliant support.

"Celtic is one of the world's great football clubs and I was desperate to make my move permanent. The scenes from May when we achieved such a historic double treble and made the city come alive are still very fresh in our memories.

"To see our fans so happy is the reason you play football and now we want to do everything we can to bring our great supporters even more success."
