Dutch striker signs up for Celtic
Jan Venegoor
Vennegoor proved himself at PSV
Netherlands striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink has completed his switch from PSV Eindhoven to Celtic.

The Scottish champions have forked out a 3.4m fee for the 27-year-old who has signed a three-year deal with the option of a further year.

Vennegoor of Hesselink said: "It is a fantastic move to a great club. I had five years at PSV and they are a great club too but this is a step up for me.

"I intended to go to another country and had a good feeling about Celtic."

The Dutchman will not make his debut against Hibernian this weekend but cannot wait until he plays his first game at Celtic Park.

He added: "Celtic are a fantastic club and anyone who knows football around the world knows the club, their great history and great fans.

"I hope to score goals and also be a good team player so that, when Celtic are playing good, I'm playing good."

Vennegoor of Hesselink began his career at FC Twente before moving to PSV in 2001.
