Celtic: Anthony Joseph drops Jota transfer update

Celtic have agreed a permanent contract for Benfica winger Jota following his successful loan spell at the Parkhead club last season.

What’s the news?

Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph took to Twitter late on Thursday night to reveal a major development in the Hoops’ pursuit of a full-time deal for the 23-year-old.

The reporter tweeted: “Jota has tonight agreed a four-year contract with Celtic. Celtic and Benfica agreed a final deal of £6.3m, with a 30% sell-on clause, last month. The Hoops have been patiently waiting for Jota to come back from his holidays to finalise personal terms.”

In fact, following Joseph’s tweet, the Hoops have now officially announced that the attacker has joined them permanently.

Last month saw the Bhoys secure a permanent transfer for Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, who like Jota had a successful loan period with Celtic in 2021/22.

During his spell at Parkhead last season, the winger made 40 appearances for Ange Postecoglou’s side across all competitions. The 23-year-old scored 13 goals and delivered 14 assists along the way, highlighting just how important he was for the Hoops as they regained the Premiership title.

Great news for Celtic supporters

Over 29 league appearances last term, the Portuguese attacker racked up 76 shots at goal, leaving only Liel Abada (81) with more at Celtic, in addition to delivering more crosses (229) than any other player in Postecoglou’s squad.

His overall performances earned the winger an impressive season rating of 7.53/10 from WhoScored, making him the second-highest rated player currently at the club.

This shows just how influential and pivotal he was during Celtic’s title-winning campaign and why the club made the right choice in signing him in the first place.

Now that the Hoops will have Jota back in their ranks for the next few years, this will surely have lots of supporters buzzing, given how impressive he was last season.

Also, having the former loan star on a permanent basis for the foreseeable future would undoubtedly give the Hoops a great chance of not only retaining the Premiership title, but also possibly winning other domestic trophies and having a successful run in Europe as well.
