The 19-year-old will join the Scottish champions on 1 July after his contract with Ipswich Town expires.

Celtic will snap up the highly-rated youngster - reportedly chased by Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa - at a discount price similar to the six-figure compensation fee paid for Moussa Dembele last summer.

Speaking to the Celtic website, Kundai said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Celtic. It’s a massive honour to sign for the Scottish champions and one of the world’s truly great clubs.

“It’s also a great opportunity for me to continue to develop as a footballer under Brendan Rodgers.

“I’m looking forward to meeting up with my new Celtic team-mates. I know there’s a lot of hard work ahead of me but I am ready for this, I’m looking forward to the challenge and I can’t wait to get started.”
