Manchester United have confirmed the departure of young defender Saidy Janko, who has agreed a four-year deal with Scottish champions Celtic, subject to a medical.

"Saidy Janko is to sign for Celtic after agreeing a four-year contract with the Scottish Premier League champions," a statement on United's official site read.

The Swiss defender, who is primarily a right-back and can play in central defence or as a right sided midfielder, joined the Red Devils in 2013 from FC Zurich. Janko made one first-team appearance for the 20-times English champions during their shock League Cup loss to MK Dons last August.

The 19-year-old defender spent the end of last season on loan with Bolton Wanderers after moving to the Macron Stadium in February, which saw Andy Kellett move the other way and join United's youth set up on a similar loan deal.

The Scottish League champions also confirmed the signing on their official site, and confirmed that the player will complete his medical on Thursday ahead of finalising his move.

"CELTIC Football Club can confirm that it has completed the signing of Saidy Janko from Manchester United on a four year contract, subject to receiving satisfactory medical results which should hopefully be with the Club tomorrow morning," a statement read on the Celtic Park outfit's official site.

The arrival of the Switzerland U19 international makes him Celtic's second signing from the Premier League this summer, with Dedrick Boyata having being signed earlier from Manchester City.

"Everybody at United would like to wish Saidy the best of luck in his future career," the statement on the Red Devils' official site concluded.

Janko becomes United's third summer departure after Tom Cleverly and Ben Amos were allowed to leave the club following the expiry of their contracts.
