Celtic have announced the signing of Patryk Klimala from Jagiellonia Białystok on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The Polish striker had been on the Hoops' radar and the club confirmed the news this afternoon.

Klimala, 21, has scored seven goals in 17 Ekstraklasa games this season.

The player will join his teammates at Lennoxtown tomorrow morning.

We told exclusively how former teammate Bodvar Bodvarsson urged Celtic fans to be patient with the striker - and reap the rewards.

He said: "I think it's always important at any new club to give yourself time to adapt. If I were a Celtic fan I would give Patryk some time because he needs a chance to get used to a new coach, new teammates and the physical aspect of the league and everything like that.

"If there is patience, he will do well but hopefully he can do well straight away."
