FILIPE JOTA revealed the attraction of continuing to play for Ange Postecoglou after sealing his £6.5million switch from Benfica.

The 23-year-old winger agreed a five-year deal following his impressive form during his loan deal which made him such a favourite with the Celtic fans.

Jota missed the start of last season before arriving at the end of the transfer window in August and made his first appearance in the 3-0 win over Ross County at Parkhead on September 11, coincidentally Cameron Carter-Vickers’ debut in which the fellow-loanee from Spurs scored the opening goal.

JOY BHOY…Filipe Jota shares his delight during the media conference.

The flamboyant Portuguese forward is looking forward to a proper pre-season at the Hoops and getting down to work for his manager.

Jota, speaking to the media, said: “The philosophy of Ange is something I was looking for for a long time.

“I’ve grown up with these ideas of the game. And to find a coach like Ange in this stage of my career is really important for me because I love the way we play, the intensity, the creativity, EVERYTHING!

“The way we play, it’s just tremendous it’s the right place to be to develop.

“I’m really happy to join.”

Jota is Postecoglou’s fourth signing in three weeks as he follows central defender Carter-Vickers, £6million from the London club, Swiss keeper Benji Siegrist, free from Dundee United, and Argentinian left-back Alexandro Bernabei, £3.75million from top-flight outfit Lanus.
