Switzerland striker Albian Ajeti has joined Celtic in a £4.5m deal from West Ham United.

The 23-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Scottish champions after making 12 appearances without scoring in a year with the Hammers.

“He is a tremendous player, an international with real quality,” said Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

“I have admired him for long time. He’s a really intelligent footballer – well balanced and a really good finisher.”

Ajeti joined West Ham from Basel, for whom he scored 30 times in two seasons.

He made only three starts in cup competitions and nine substitute appearances in the English Premier League.

Ajeti, who has 10 caps for his country, came through the youth ranks at Basel but had spells with Augsburg in Germany’s top flight and Swiss Super League rivals St Gallen before a transfer back to St Jakob-Park in 2017.
