Midfielder Stefan Johansen leaves Celtic to move to Fulham

Stefan Johansen was named Scottish PFA player of the season for 2014-15.

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has completed a move to Fulham.

Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers had earlier confirmed the 25-year-old Norwegian was on his way out of Parkhead after failing to agree a contract extension.

The move sees Johansen depart Parkhead after two-and-a-half years, having joined from Norwegian side Stromsgodset in January 2014.

Celtic announced on their website that the deal was complete, stating: "Stefan Johansen has joined English Championship club Fulham on a three-year deal."
