Done deals

Celtic have finally wrapped up transfer of Reggina playmaker Shunsuke Nakamura. Gordon Strachan has signed one of the best playmakers available in Europe at the moment and boosts his prospects significantly. This is the best player at Celtic since Henrik Larsson.

Cardiff City have signed 18-year-old ex-Parma forward Andreas Ferretti after a successful trial. The player moves to the Welsh side on a 2 two year contract. Apparently the player came at Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson’s recommendation. Funny, he probably gets his first start as a Bluebird in a friendly against Italian side Udinese.

Nigeria midfielder Sunday Oliseh has returned to Belgium with KRC Genk. The move is a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund where he’d spent the last five seasons. Nigerian youth international Promise Isaac had made his first move to Europe via Turkish outfit Genclerbirligi.

Leonardo has left Santos in Brazil to sign for Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainian League title holders have brought in the 19 year old defender to start right away. Leonardo won the FIFA U-17‘s in 2003 with Brazil and looks a quality defender.

I think nakamura could be a quality signing for Celtic in their bid to win back the spl from Rangers.

cathal-

I haven't seen it mentioned much, but one of his best features is he likes to chase back and help defend, real team player.

FC, i hope you're right about Nakamura defending from the front, we are in a transitional phase just now and i think he will be a celtic legend, but the fans and the rest of the team will not tolerate anyone who doesnt work hard.
great blog by the way

brummybhoy-

Thanks. I think you'll be impressed. He's had a year to learn under Italian league pressure (and doubly on an average team like Reggina). He's prepared for Europe.
