Celtic have confirmed their first signing of the January transfer window, as striker Patryk Klimala completes his move to Parkhead, according to BBC Sport.
The 21-year-old put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half year deal with the club on Tuesday, with The Daily Mail confirming a £3.5million fee was paid to Jagiellonia Bialystok.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
With Klimala’s move now confirmed, we can all breathe a slight sigh of relief that Celtic have completed one of their January targets by signing a new striker.
And we believe the 21-year-old could become an excellent addition for the Hoops.
Not only does he now have a good amount of time to adjust to the club and get used to his new teammates’ style of play before the return to domestic action this weekend.
But Klimala looks to be arriving at the club with a fantastic attitude, given how he has previously stated his desire to move to a team where he will be a first choice striker.
That emphasises how he is up for the challenge of competing with Odsonne Edouard for a first-team spot, which we believe can only benefit the pair, as Celtic now have two 21-year-old striker’s at their disposal who will both likely be pushing hard in training to impress Lennon week in week out.
Furthermore, Klimala arrives having already had a strong start to the season in terms of goal contributions, with seven goals and three assists in 15 league outings thus far.
Therefore he is likely to be full of confidence following his move, and we believe the striker could be a hit at Parkhead given time.
