Lure of Champions League sold Holmbert Fridjonsson on Celtic move
The Icelandic forward has sealed his move to the Scottish champions.
New Celtic signing Holmbert Fridjonsson says the lure of the Champions League is just one of the factors that helped to convince him to join the Scottish champions.
The Icelandic forward will join in January after formally completing his £100,000 move from Fram Reykjavik.
Speaking exclusively to STV, Fridjonsson said competing in Europe's premier club competition played a part in his decision: "Yeah of course [Champions League football is important].
"Celtic is a big club and when they come in it is hard to say no.
"I was buzzing [when I heard about Celtic's interest]. It was just brilliant. I had an offer from Holland but I thought Celtic was a much better choice."
An Under-21 international, Fridjonsson scored 12 goals in 23 appearances for his club in the 2013 season and will talk at a media conference on Wednesday.
His representative, Olafur Gardarsson, spoke to STV on Tuesday, about the player's possible impact in Glasgow.
"He is a striker that scores goals," said Gardarsson. "I think he is a very promising player, to say the least.
"He is very delighted. He went on trial with a club in Holland and he liked it there. But he liked it here. He felt very welcome and he obviously was liked by [Neil] Lennon, so he is very pleased.
"He is confident. He knows he has to work hard and the season in Iceland was over two months ago. So he is not match fit. He knows he has to work hard and it is not easy to walk into a club like Celtic. But he will do his best."
