Celtic have completed the triple signing of Daizen Maeda, Yosuke Ideguchi and Reo Hatate from Japan’s J League.

Ideguchi, a 25-year-old midfielder, is leaving Gamba Osaka to move to Celtic, while Hatate, a 24-year-old who can play on the left or in midfield, joins from Kawasaki Frontale, the Japanese champions.

Postecoglou told Celtic’s website: “We are really pleased to bring in these guys to Celtic and I think they are players who will excite our fans.

“Clearly I am well aware of their attributes and I think in bringing all three to the club we are bringing even more quality, personality and energy to the squad to work with the players who have done so well for us already this season.

“They are all really at the peak of their careers, ambitious to achieve more success and I am sure at this particular time we will be getting their best years.
