Celina came through Man City's academy as a young prospect, spending six years at the club. He assisted Sergio Aguero in his one and only Premier League appearance, a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City at the Etihad. Incidentally, he also scored the winning goal in an FA Youth Cup fifth round tie against Stoke City in 2015.
The Kosovan joined Swansea in 2018, going on to score 10 goals in 79 appearances. He helped the club reach the Championship play-off semi-finals in 2020 before joining Dijon.
Born in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia before it dissolved, Celina grew up as a refugee in Drammen, Norway. He represented his adopted country at youth level before switching allegiance to Kosovo, for whom he was won 33 caps since 2014.
