BRENDAN RODGERS has been involved in a whirlwind SIXTEEN transfer deals since becoming Celtic boss in May.

Stefan Johansen became the sixth player to exit the Hoops on a permanent basis when he joined Fulham on Friday night while six are now on loan. 

Goalkeeper Dorus de Vries, 35, became the Irishman’s fourth signing after quitting Nottingham Forest to agree a two-year deal.

He followed Scott Sinclair, 27, who switched from relegated Aston Villa, Moussa Dembele, 20, who arrived from Fulham in June, and thirty-five-year-old Ivorian central defender Kolo Toure, a free agent following his release from Liverpool in the summer.

Rodgers has spent £5.4million and brought in just over £3million.

Kolo Toure (Liverpool, free)

Scott Sinclair (Aston Villa, £4.5m)

Dorus de Vries (Nottingham Forest, £400,000)
