Brendan Rodgers Celtic loan signing set for Juventus move

Timothy Weah looks set to seal a £12m move to Juventus. The USA Internationalist was one of Brendan Rodgers’ final signings at Celtic but could be plying his trade with the Serie A giants with a move from Lille close to being agreed upon.

Weah spent a short-term loan at Celtic, joining from PSG, before the son of George moved to Lille. In 108 appearances with the French club, Weah scored 8 goals and 8 assists playing a key role in winning the league in 2020/21.

The Celtic Star broke the news that Weah was joining Celtic back in 2019 from PSG and the son of George Weah sparkled initially. Although with Rodgers leaving for Leicester City, Neil Lennon decided to cut Weah’s game time and eventually cut his loan short as the player decided to pick his country over the Scottish Cup Final. In 17 appearances, he scored 4 goals.

Weah is clearly a talented player but the move symbolises a change in Juve’s strategy with regards to grandstand signings.
