Celtic have completed the signing of Costa Rican defender Cristian Gamboa from English club West Bromwich Albion on a three year contract.

"Celtic are delighted to announce the signing of Cristian Gamboa from English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on a three-year deal," said the Scottish club in a statement on Tuesday.

Gamboa, 26, has been capped 47 times with Cost Rica, scoring two goals.

The defender began his career in Municipal Liberia before making the jump to Europe in the summer 2010 with Norwegian side Fredrikstad.

Gamboa has struggled to break into the West Brom first team and will relish the prospect of a new start under Brendan Rodgers.
