Celtic Sign Luis Palma for £3.5m; Nat Phillips Joins on Loan

Celtic Welcomes Luis Palma and Nat Phillips

Celtic Football Club has made some exciting moves in the summer transfer window. The team has officially signed Honduran international winger, Luis Palma, in a deal worth £3.5 million. Notably, Liverpool’s defender Nat Phillips has also arrived in Glasgow to finalize a one-year loan deal with the Scottish champions.

Luis Palma, a 23-year-old talent, has joined Celtic as their seventh signing for this season. The winger has committed to a five-year contract with the club. Having represented Honduras six times, Palma is geared up for potential action against Rangers at Ibrox in the upcoming clash.

Palma shared his enthusiasm about joining Celtic, stating, “It’s a special day for me, and I’m honored to be part of Celtic. I can’t wait to contribute to this great club known worldwide. I’m excited to play the right way, entertain the fans, and be part of the winning tradition.”

Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Celtic, expressed his satisfaction with the signing, noting, “We are delighted to have Luis on board. He’s a talented player who loves attacking football, making him a great fit for our team.”

In addition to Palma, Nat Phillips from Liverpool is set to reinforce Celtic’s defensive line through a one-year loan deal. This move comes as Celtic aims to strengthen its squad after recent setbacks in the Viaplay Cup and the league.

With a challenging Old Firm match against Rangers approaching, Celtic hopes these signings will enhance their performance. The team is also focused on securing a new left-back and midfielder before the transfer window closes on Friday.

While the transfer window action continues, fans can tune in to “It’s All Kicking Off,” a fresh podcast from Mail Sport, offering a unique perspective on Premier League football. The podcast is available on various platforms, including MailOnline, Mail+, YouTube, Apple Music, and Spotify.

Celtic remains optimistic about extending contracts with players like Liel Abada and Reo Hatate. However, some final details need to be sorted before agreements are finalized. As the window’s closing draws near, the club anticipates further developments in player negotiations and potential exits from the team.
