IT’S OFFICIAL! CELTIC have now officially announced the signing of Timothy Weah on a six-month loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain.
The Celtic Star broke the news on Christmas Eve that Celtic were working on a 6 month loan move for the 18 year striker who has won 8 caps for the United States.
There was informed speculation this morning that this deal might have been extended to 18 months after Weah extended his contract with the French Champions by one year at the end of last week.
Perhaps another loan period is in the pipeline for next season if things go well for all concerned parties between now and the end of the season?
Timothy will now join his new Celtic team-mates for training tomorrow.
Brendan Rodgers brought Weah over to Lennoxtown for a tour and a chance to see and hear how Celtic operate and clearly did a fine job in selling the club to one of the most notable teenagers in world football.

“Timothy’s a young talent who is full international player,” The Celtic manager said to The Celtic View.
“He has a long career ahead of him but he has those natural attributes in terms of his pace and technique. He’s hungry too.
“He’s been in the PSG squad and featured for them in pre-season.
“With the quality of players they have, it’s difficult for him to get in and get any game-time.
“They wanted him to go out on loan and saw Celtic as a great possibility.
“He has really good qualities technically, and tactically is always improving his game. Physically he’s very good, very fast and is a strong player.
“He’ll add competition to the squad.”
Welcome to Celtic, Timothy!
Two down, one to go!
