Scepovic joins Hoops

Last Updated: Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:24

Stefan Scepovic made a dramatic U-turn and decided to join Celtic less than 24 hours after turning them down.

The 24-year-old striker from Sporting Gijon had agreed a four-year deal with the Scottish champions following talks last week. He also passed his Celtic medical on Friday but late on Sunday changed his mind and seemed intent on remaining in Spain at Getafe.

However, the move did not materialise, opening the door for the second time on his switch to Glasgow.

It has been reported that the Getafe deal floundered over financial terms.

Scepovic has been capped eight times by Serbia and will remain at Parkhead until the summer of 2018.

He becomes the club's sixth summer signing, joining Craig Gordon, Jo Inge Berget, Aleksandar Tonev, Jason Denayer and Mubarak Wakaso in Glasgow.
