Presenter John McGinley has expressed his excitement after Celtic announced the transfer of Yuki Kobayashi who will join this winter.
While the World Cup takes place in Qatar, back in Scotland it seems as though those who pull the strings for the Hoops have been working hard at bolstering the squad ahead of the second half of the season.
The 22-year central defender can join up with his teammates at the start of December and will be able to play competitively when the transfer market opens in January.
While reacting to the news on Twitter, McGinley made clear how happy he was with the deal, writing: “We never stop.”

The young defender is a Japan U21 international but is yet to represent his country at a senior level and so was not picked to play any part in the World Cup this winter.

He may still only be 22, but Kobayashi may well expect to establish himself as a regular in the Bhoys’ set-up soon after arriving. After all, despite his age, he has already played for Vissel Kobe 78 times.
