Scottish club Celtic have formally signed an agreement with the Mexican club Santos Laguna to form a partnership. Under the agreement, the clubs would hope to transfer knowledge on coaching, players, football academies and perhaps eventually swap first-team players.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell said: "We have have an excellent relationship with Santos Laguna.

"And we hope to formalise this partnership early next year. Laguna is a great club, run by great people. We already have an agreement in place with Napoli, so this one makes sense too."

Celtic have already tapped into the Mexican market, signing international midfielder Efrain Juarez from Pumas de la UNAM this summer. Phil Bardsley has also been linked to the club.
