Ajeti departs Hammers for Celtic

West Ham United striker, Albian Ajeti, has left the club to link up with Scottish champions, Celtic, penning a four-year deal with the Parkhead outfit for an undisclosed fee.

The Swiss frontman – capped ten times by his native country – joined the Hammers from Swiss Super League outfit FC Basel but found opportunities hard to come by in east London.

Speaking to www.ce;lticfc.net, Bhoys boss, Neil Lennon, said: “We are delighted to bring Albian to Celtic. He is a tremendous player, an international with real quality and I know he is really determined to do all he can to bring more success to our supporters.

“I have admired him for a long time as he is a really intelligent footballer, well balanced and a really good finisher. We are so pleased to make him a Celtic player and we hope he has a long and prosperous career with us.”
