Celtic have confirmed the long-awaited signing of fan favourite Jota on a permanent deal from Benfica.

The winger was a key figure last season on loan as he helped the Hoops reclaim the league title.

And they have now made the move permanent, with Jota putting pen to paper on a four-year deal at Parkhead.

Reports in both Scotland and Portugal place the fee for the 23-year-old at €7.5m, while Benfica will also retain a 30% stake in any future transfer.

Jota scored 13 goals and provided 14 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions last season.
