SPL transfer round-up: Celtic capture Derry striker

Celtic signed forward Michael Duffy from Derry City in a deal worth a reported £100,000 in the final stages of the transfer window last night.

The Scottish club also succeeded in their pursuit of Dundee United pair Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven.

Armstrong signed a three-and-a-half-year contract while Mackay-Steven completed his move to Parkhead having already signed a pre-contract agreement. He has signed until 2019.

The move weakens United's attacking options just two days after they set up a QTS Scottish League Cup final meeting with Celtic but they have the compensation of about £2m to add to their increasingly healthy finances.

And, after failing to re-sign Scott Allan from Hibernian, they used some of that money to buy Scotland Under-19 forward Robbie Muirhead from Kilmarnock on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Left-back Paul Dixon returned to Tannadice from Huddersfield as Conor Townsend's loan move from Hull was brought to an end.

and tied up 19-year-old defender Eoghan O'Connell on a contract extension that keeps him at the club until 2017.
