Celtic have signed Nicolas Kuhn, a Rapid Vienna winger, for a five-and-a-half-year contract at a fee of £3 million. This is Brendan Rodgers’ first January signing as Celtic aim to retain their league title.
The 24-year-old completed his £3 million transfer to the Scottish Premiership leaders after a satisfactory medical in London.
Kuhn, who played for Ajax and Bayern Munich in his youth, has scored three goals and seven assists for Rapid this season.
The German might make his Celtic Cup debut on Sunday against Buckie Thistle of the Highland League.
“I am overjoyed that I am finally here, and I cannot wait. “Celtic is one of the biggest clubs around, and I’m delighted to be here,” he stated.
“I’m incredibly driven to achieve well for this fantastic club, and I want to start working right away as we have challenges in the League and Cup this year, so I’m really looking forward to what’s coming.
“In the end, the challenge at Celtic is to do everything we can to win every game. I can’t wait to get started and do my absolute best for our supporters.”
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers stated, “We are happy to welcome Nicolas to Celtic. We believe he is a dynamic player with high talent and all the necessary characteristics to fit into our style of play.
“He has the profile we are looking for, he has a real attacking intent, a player with great pace and ideas, the ability to create and score goals and a player with a great energy and work ethic.”He can play wide on both sides, so he adds versatility to our team, and both myself and the coaches here are excited to work with him.
