Celtic have off-loaded striker Mohamed Bangura to Swedish champions Elfsborg on a year-long loan.
The Parkhead frontman has failed to shine in the SPL since being signed by Neil Lennon for £2million in 2011.
He spent the first half of this season on loan at AIK Stockholm but they couldn’t afford his wages for the rest of the campaign.
Elfsborg, who sold Oscar Hiljemark to PSV Eindhoven for £1.8m, stepped in and unveiled Bangura, 23, last night as their new star for the Swedish season that kicks off in March.
Swedish top-flight side Malmo FF have announced the signing of Heart of Lions teenage striker Benjamin Fadi on a three-year deal.
But the deal will take effect on March 16, 2013 when the Ghana U20 player turns 18.
Officials of the Allsvenskan side were in Accra two weeks ago to discuss his transfer fee.
"It feels good that we can forge such a talent to us over such a long time" Malmo Sporting director director Per Agren said.
"Given his young age, I feel that there is much potential left to develop."
Fadi had a successful two-week trial session at the club and convinced head coach Rikard Norling who extolled his attributes.

Ghanaian forward Majeed Waris has joined Spartak Moscow from Swedish side Hacken, the Russian club said Saturday.
The 21-year-old, who had been linked to Everton and Chelsea, has signed a “long-term” deal, Spartak said without providing further details.
“Spartak are a big club with big prospects,” Waris said on the team’s website, adding that Spartak's 2-1 Champions League defeat to Celtic had inspired him to sign.
“The team caught my interest after I watched the game against Celtic. I liked the team, it seemed that I can develop and express myself here.”
Tunisia striker Saber Khelifa struck a hat-trick on Saturday to help visitors Evian TG to a crushing 3:2 win over champions Montpellier in the French Ligue 1.
The 25-year-old striker opened scoring in the 30th minute, but Montpellier responded immediately to level proceedings six minutes later. The holders then grabbed the lead following a goal by experienced Senegal striker Souleymane Camara in the 42nd minute.
However Khelifa, who has now scored five goals in his last three games, struck twice in the second period to seal all three points for Evian.
Meanwhile Algeria forward Foued Kadir scored for the second week running for Valenciennes who drew 2:2 with hosts Toulouse.
