Albian Ajeti became Celtic’s second permanent signing of the summer on Thursday.

The Swiss international has joined Neil Lennon’s ranks in a deal said to be worth £4.5million, according to the BBC.

Ajeti was announced as a Celtic player just after lunchtime on Thursday, and was almost immediately seen on the club website posing with his new number 10 shirt.

The forward has taken that number just a day after its old holder Vakoun Bayo departed the scene, on a season long loan to Toulouse.

It was an interesting ploy by the club to discard Bayo as our number 10, and give it to new recruit Ajeti – who joins on a four-year deal.

The move surely spells the end of any hopes the Ivorian had in Glasgow.

And, as you may expect, some Celtic fans have recognised the symbolism attached to the club’s decision.

Ajeti decision spells the end for Bayo

The move to give Ajeti our number 10 jersey is a strong, ruthless one from the club.

Bayo is only away on loan, and Ajeti’s deal is permanent. That means that there’s a fair chance both could find themselves at the club next pre-season.

The reality is that Bayo won’t be sticking around for much longer than that though.

His move to France comes with an option to buy (Scottish Sun) so its clear we see little future for him in Glasgow.

Nothing against Bayo, but his signing has been a bit of a disaster.

Hopefully our new man Ajeti can make more of an impact.

In other news, some Celtic fans have been reacting to the signing of Ajeti.
