Mexico Primera Division side Club America claim they have signed defender Efrain Juarez from Celtic.

Juarez arrived at Celtic on a three-year deal from UNAM Pumas after an impressive spell at the 2010 World Cup.

However, he failed to push into the Celtic first team and was loaned out to Real Zaragoza on a season-long loan deal last year.

The 24-year-old made 11 starts and nine sub appearances under Neil Lennon after his £3m move in 2010.
