Argentine club Lanus have confirmed the sale of highly-rated young defender Alexandro Bernabei to Scottish champions Celtic.

The 21-year-old left-back - who is capable of playing anywhere on the left flank - underwent a medical over the weekend and has now become the Glasgow club's fourth signing of the summer.

Daizen Maeda and Cameron Carter-Vickers' loan moves have been made permanent, while the Bhoys also won the race for Dundee United goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist.

A statement from Lanus read: "Through this, we communicate the transfer of Alexandro Bernabei to Celtic Football Club, from Scotland; 10% of the player's rights will continue to be held by Club Atlético Lanús.

"With our shirt, Bernabei has added 88 official matches and five goals, becoming part of the youth categories of the Argentine National Team.

"To Berna, one of the many talents of the garnet quarry, we wish him the best of success in his next professional challenge."

90min understands Celtic are also continuing talks with Lommel over the loan signing of 23-year-old Souza. The midfielder left Flamengo to sign for the Belgian club aged 21 and spent last season out on loan at First Division A side Mechelen, helping them to an eighth-placed finish.
