An attack-minded full-back, Jeahze will add competition to current left-back Greg Taylor. While Celtic have some cover in that position in the shape of Liam Scales, it has been an area of priority for manager Ange Postecoglou.

Jeahze had been tracked by a number of clubs across Europe - including Polish outfit Lech Poznan – but it is understood that the lure of Champions League football, with Celtic set to clinch the cinch Premiership title on Wednesday at Tannadice, was one of the main factors in the move.

Hammarby are currently the leaders in Sweden’s Allsvenskan, with Jeahze playing a key part in their success.
