Celina already knew that two other City youngsters, Enes Unal and Yaw Yeboah, were on the club's books ahead of his own move.
The trio have scored 17 of the club's 27 goals this season and their friendship off the field has certainly benefited Twente's quest to improve on last season's 13th place finish.
"When I knew they were there, I didn't think it was safer to come here but I thought it would be good because we know we can do well together and we can help the team," he told the Manchester Evening News.
"I want Enes to be the top scorer so I try to look for him when I have the ball so he can score goals.
"It's the same with Yeboah."
