Promising Celtic youngster set for Dundee switch

JONATHAN AFOLABI looks set to join Dundee on a season-long loan. The Irish U21 was on loan at Dunfermline in the second half of last season and now Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph has confirmed that James McPake’s side have swooped to add the youngster to their ranks.

Afolabi joined Celtic from Southampton in the summer but failed to make an impression with the first team meaning he is yet to make his debut so made the switch to Fife in an attempt to get some first team experience.

With Odsonne Edouard, Albian Ajeti, Leigh Griffiths and Patryk Klimala ahead of him in the club’s striking hierarchy, Afolabi will look to get some first team exposure with the Championship side as they hope to gain promotion. Their first game of the season will be against promotion rivals Hearts.

Afolabi was booked for ‘excessive celebrating’ when he scored a goal versus Dundee United and will be hoping to build upon a positive impression with the Championship side – something that the Dee supporters will be happy with in their new signing.
