The Hoops confirmed on their official website today that they have signed Furuhashi on a four year deal from Vissel Kobe.

The 26-year-old attacker has made a move to Parkhead on a permanent basis to bolster the options for new Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou.

Furuhashi, who has three goals in six caps for Japan’s senior national side, arrives with a glowing reputation. 

The versatile forward can play as a winger or central striker. He scored 15 goals in 21 appearances across all competitions last season.
