Jullien, signed from Toulouse for £7million in 2019, featured just once under Ange Postecoglou last season following his return from a long-term injury which kept him out for more than a year.

The 29-year-old was understood to be keen to fight for his place at Celtic but interest emerged from Germany as well as clubs in the French top-flight.

Last season, he was behind Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt and Stephen Welsh in the pecking order.

Jullien will depart having played 62 games for Celtic, playing a pivotal role in helping the club win a treble in 2020.

Meanwhile, Celtic are closing in on the signing of Alexandro Bernanbei from Lanus.
