Manchester United have confirmed Saidy Janko will join Scottish Premier League champions Celtic on a four-year contract.
The 19-year-old will complete his move pending a successfully passed medical which he is set to undergo this morning.
Having been named the Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year in his debut year at the club, Janko progressed last season by going out on a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers where he impressed manager Neil Lennon.
However, Louis van Gaal has decided there is no place in his Man United squads for the Swiss right-back and he’ll now have to ply his trade with Celtic.

When news broke earlier this week that Celtic were closing in on a deal for Janko, fans were very surprised to hear about it being a potentially permanent move given how much he has progressed over the last two years.
It seems very premature to let Janko leave on a permanent deal having spent two years helping him progress and improve as a player. Fans expected Janko to go out on another loan deal to continue improving but Van Gaal clearly saw it differently.
All we can do now is wish Saidy the best of luck at Celtic.
