Maryan Shved has reportedly arrived in Glasgow after securing a work permit. The Ukrainian, who was signed by Celtic for £1.75m in January has played the final match of his loan spell with Karpaty Lviv.
The winger is now expected to meet his new teammates and start to train with the squad ahead of next season.
Fans on Twitter want Shved to be involved with the first team as soon as possible:
Get him in the team asap

It’s looks like he’s got bags of potential. Hopefully we can develop him into another £20m player 😂

Some even would consider playing the 21-year-old in the cup final against Hearts at the end of the month:

Is he available for the final?

Whether that is possible, it isn’t known. Shved is officially a Celtic player after finishing his loan at Karpaty but there may be issues surrounding registration.
The Ukrainian has been in good form this campaign having scored 14 goals in 24 appearances in the Ukrainian Premier Liga. He generally plays off the right wing, cutting in onto his stronger left foot to get shots away.
