Celtic delighted to sign Uruguayan internationalist, Diego Laxalt

CELTIC Football Club are delighted to announce that Uruguayan internationalist, Diego Laxalt, has joined the club on loan from AC Milan until the end of the season

The 27-year-old left-sided player, who has been capped 24 times by his country, has been with the Italian giants since joining from Genoa in 2018, where he had been a team-mate of Olivier Ntcham.

Diego becomes the latest signing for Neil Lennon's squad during this transfer window, joining Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti, David Turnbull and fellow loan signings, Shane Duffy and Moi Elyounoussi at the Scottish champions.

Last season he spent the first part of the campaign on loan at Torino, although he returned to the San Siro and played for the Rossoneri during the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign. And AC Milan will be Celtic's first opponents in this season's UEFA Europa League group stages, with the Italian side visiting Glasgow on October 22.

After starting his career with Defensor Sporting in Uruguay, Diego moved to Italy in 2013 when he joined Inter Milan. During three years with the club, he also had spells with Bologna, Empoli and Genoa before joining the latter on a permanent basis in 2016.

His international debut for Uruguay came in a friendly match against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin back in June 2017. Ireland won that game 3-1, and Diego’s new Celtic team-mate, Shane Duffy, played in the match.

Everyone welcomes Diego to Celtic and wishes him every success in the green and white Hoops.

Exclusive interview with Diego Laxalt to follow on the official Celtic website.
