New Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko has revealed that he turned down the chance to move to the Premier League in order to join the Scottish Premiership champions.
The 24-year-old, who has four caps and a goal to his name for Denmark, completed a £1.5m move from FC Midtjylland earlier this week.
He has now vowed to "give everything" for his new side and claimed that he chose Celtic over other options as they are a "winning club".
"It means a lot. It means I'm finally away from Denmark. It has been a tough wait for me. When Celtic came in for me, I felt this was a very good decision. This is a winning club," he told reporters.
"The fans can expect someone who will give everything, who will connect with them. I walked around Celtic Park and had goosebumps. I could have gone to Italy and the Championship and, last year, to the Premier League but when this opportunity came along I was so happy we could connect the dots."
Sviatchenko could make his debut for Ronny Deila's side when they host Hamilton Academical on Tuesday night.
