Celtic sign Man City star on loan deal

Celtic have signed Belgian defender Jason Denayer on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

The 19-year-old signed for City following two years in the Anderlecht youth team.

His arrival came just over 12 hours after Aston Villa's Bulgarian international winger Aleksandar Tonev also moved to Celtic Park on a season's loan.

Centre-back Denayer was with the City first-team squad on their tours of Scotland and the United States. But his path from the club's elite development squad was further blocked this week when the English champions signed France central defender Eliaquim Mangala in a £32million transfer from Porto.
