The Bulgarian winger joins Craig Gordon and Jo Inge Berget as the Norwegian manager's first recruits, with the club having the option to buy after the year-long loan.

And the Hoops are hoping to add at least one more player before tonight's 11pm registration deadline for the Champions League play-off round.

Tonev was the subject of a £2million bid by the Hoops last summer.

But, after Celtic agreed a deal with his then club, Lech Poznan, in Poland, Aston Villa topped their offer by £500,000 and the 24-year-old chose to accept the chance to move to the Premier League.

Tonev struggled to make any impact as Paul Lambert's side fought relegation, failing to score a single goal, and is now looking to kick-start his career again at Celtic Park.
