Boruc has been in impressive form with Celtic
Celtic have ended speculation about the future of their on-loan goalkeeper Artur Boruc with the news that he has signed a three-and-a-half year deal.

The 25-year-old was initially signed on a year-long loan deal from Legia Warsaw and his form had reportedly attracted interest from Arsenal.

But the Pole has now signed a new deal at Celtic Park, with the club having an option to keep him for a further year.

Boruc is now under contract with Celtic until at least the summer of 2009.

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan said he was delighted that Boruc has signed permanently.

"It doesn't make a difference whether it was Arsenal or Juventus who were interested in him, we were blinkered and wanted Artur here," said Strachan.

"We were in pole position. We brought Artur to the club and, once he was here, we knew he would like it.

"Everybody at the club - the players, coaching staff and people behind the scenes - are delighted."
