Celtic line up Stokes swoop

Fortune, 29, joined the Baggies on loan in January 2009 from Nancy before then signing for Celtic as then-Hoops manager Tony Mowbray reshaped his squad last summer.

However, Mowbray's successor, Neil Lennon, is now looking to make further changes to the side and, having confirmed his interest in signing Hibs striker Anthony Stokes, he has allowed Fortune to move on.

A message on Celtic's website read: "Everyone at Celtic Football Club would like to thank Marc for his contribution and wish him all the best for his future career."

West Brom boss Roberto Di Matteo told his club's official website: "I'm delighted to welcome Marco back to the club. The great thing about this signing is that it won't take him long to settle because he knows the club inside out.

"He also knows what this league is all about. Marco got on really well with the other players during his loan here and they're all delighted to see him back."
