Stokes makes switch from Hibernian to Celtic

Celtic have completed the signing of Anthony Stokes from Hibernian on a four-year deal for a reported £1.2m The Republic of Ireland international becomes Celtic manager Neil Lennon's 11th signing of the summer.

The 22-year-old striker, who has won three caps for his country, was top scorer for Hibs last season with 23 goals.

Stokes joins his boyhood heroes at the second time of asking after rejecting them in January 2007 for a move to Sunderland.

His move to the Stadium of Light, however, did not work out and the striker had further loan spells with Sheffield United and Crystal Palace before making a permanent move to Hibs last year when he teamed up with former Bairns boss John Hughes.
