Celtic vs Hearts

Celtic have officially announced the signing of Australian midfielder Leo Mazis on a three-year deal.

The 17-year-old and Celtic reached an agreement to join forces near the end of the January transfer window.

His transfer from Belconnen United who play in Canberra’s National Premier League was held as the Hoops waited for the player’s visa to come through.

Now that all the formalities have been completed, Mazi’s is expected to link up with the developmental squad at Parkhead.

Mazis will remain contracted to the Hoops till the summer of 2021 and he will be hoping that he can break into the first-team after establishing himself in Tommy Mclyntyre’s second string side.

Mazis said: “It was unbelievable when I got the call to say Celtic were offering me a contract. It’s always been my dream to play football at the highest level and Celtic are a massive club so I’m over the moon with this opportunity.

“My dream is to one day play for the first team but obviously right now I’m only concentrating on just getting settled and getting game time in the Development Squad. I need to find my feet a bit and take things a step at a time.”
