Jota Has Left Celtic: Following two years in Glasgow, the 24-year-old makes the permanent move.
Celtic have revealed that Portuguese winger Jota has left the club to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad. The 24-year-old joins on a permanent basis after two years in Glasgow, where he spent one season on loan from Benfica before completing a permanent deal.
Jota helped Celtic win two league titles during his two-year stint, scoring 27 goals in all competitions.
He joins a number of high-profile players in the Saudi Pro League, becoming Al-Ittihad’s third acquisition of the summer, following former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and ex-Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Celtic announced the deal on their website: “During his time in the Hoops, Jota won two league titles as well as winner’s medals in both the Scottish and League Cups.”
“Everyone at Celtic Football Club wishes Jota continued success in his future career.”
