Jonathan Afolabi Joins Celtic - Two Year Deal
Celtic have confirmed the signing of Republic of Ireland under 19 international Jonathan Afolabi.

Celtic have confirmed the signing of Republic of Ireland under 19 international Jonathan Afolabi.

Afolabi (19), who starred up front in Ireland's run to the semi-finals in the recent U19 Euros, was a free agent after being released by previous club Southampton earlier this summer.

The Tallaght native can play as a striker or on the wing.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon told The Scotsman: "He's here. He’s a young lad from Southampton, we’ve signed him on a free transfer and he’s one for development.

"He’s on the cusp, so he’ll come in and train with us and we’ll get a good look at him in a couple of weeks.

"Then we’ll decide what we want to with in terms of where his progression is.

"He had a great tournament in the Euros. He’s raw, but we feel he has good potential."

The Republic of Ireland international, 19, has agreed a two-year deal with the Scottish champions after leaving St Mary's.

He was pictured at Celtic Park during Celtic's 2-1 extra-time League Cup win over Dunfermline Athletic.
