From Celtic FC: Maik Nawrocki has become the latest addition to Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic squad after the defender today joined the club on a five-year deal from Legia Warsaw, subject to international clearance.
The 22-year-old Polish Under-21 internationalist helped Legia Warsaw win the Polish Cup last season, scoring the final spot-kick in a 6-5 penalty shoot-out victory over Rakow Czestochowa.
A former team-mate of Josip Juranovic, he played briefly alongside the Croatian defender for Legia Warsaw before Juranovic moved to Celtic back in August 2021.
Maik Nawrocki was born in Bremen, Germany, and came through the Werder Bremen youth system. It was while at the club that he spent a season on loan at Legia Warsaw before making the move a permanent one last year.
Now he has joined the Scottish treble winners, and Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers said: “It’s another very good signing for us and we’re delighted to have brought Maik to the club.
“He’s a very highly-rated young player and someone who we believe will be a great addition to the squad.
“He’s also a player I am very much aware of, having seen him play for Legia Warsaw in the Europa League and I know he was very keen to move to Celtic, so we’re looking forward to working with him.”
Maik Nawrocki said: “It’s great for me to have joined Celtic and I’m looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and start training with them.
“Celtic are a famous club throughout the world and, of course, they’re very well-known in Poland, having had a number of Polish players in recent years, so I know just how big this club is and how incredible the supporters are, and I can’t wait to play in front of the fans and experience that for myself.”
