From The Herlad.


eltic have completed the signing of Efrain Juarez, the Mexico internationalist, from UNAM Pumas, subject to a medical and work permit.


The full-back, who can also play in midfield, has signed a four-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of �£4m and becomes Neil Lennonâ��s fourth summer signing after Charlie Mulgrew, Cha Du-Ri and Joe Ledley. Reports in Mexico claimed that Celtic were rejected in their initial attempt to sign Juarez on loan with the option to buy but a deal has finally been concluded.


The Mexican is the latest piece in the jigsaw as manager Neil Lennon continues his refurbishment at Parkhead and that spending shows no sign of abating with the Celtic managerâ��s turnover of players likely to generate as much as �£14m to invest in the side.


Stephen McManus, the club captain, completed his move to Middlesbrough yesterday and Artur Boruc edged closer to a �£2m switch to Fiorentina, deals which are set to reduce the clubâ��s weekly wage bill by around �£200,000, when added to the departures of Robbie Keane, Edson Braafheid, Lee Naylor, Diomansy Kamara, Landry Nâ��Guemo, Zheng Zhi and Koki Mizuno.


Across the city, Walter Smith is set to use part of the money he raises by allowing Kevin Thomson to join McManus at Middlesbrough to entice Chris Eagles, the Burnley winger, in a Ã?£1m deal. The Rangers 
manager is keen to deploy him on the right of midfield, with Steven Davis filling the void left by Thomsonââ?¬â?¢s imminent departure.


Thomson held talks with Gordon Strachan yesterday and is set for a medical before completing a move.
