Brighton defender Shane Duffy has joined Celtic on a season-long loan.

The Republic of Ireland international makes the move to Parkhead on undisclosed terms and subject to international clearance after four years on the south coast.

Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Celtic had made a loan bid for the centre-back.

Celtic are expected to pay a loan fee of just under £2m and Brighton want Neil Lennon’s side to contribute a large chunk of his wages – which are believed to be in the region of £45,000-per-week.

West Brom and West Ham were also keen on signing the 28-year-old this summer.
