Kayal signs for Celtic

Celtic have announced the signing of Israel midfielder Beram Kayal.

The 22-year-old has signed a four-year contract after completing his move from Maccabi Haifa, subject to final paperwork.

Kayal will be unveiled at the club’s Lennoxtown training ground today as Celtic look to lift the gloom following their 3-0 Champions League defeat by Sporting Braga.

Kayal, who has won 13 caps for Israel, becomes Neil Lennon's seventh summer signing.

He follows Cha Du-Ri, Charlie Mulgrew, Joe Ledley and Efrain Juarez – who all played in the defeat in Portugal – as well as strikers Daryl Murphy and Gary Hooper.
