Celtic land PSG Timothy Weah on Loan
FOOTBALL- 7 January 2019 21:26 GMT
Celtic have announced the loan signing of Timothy Weah from Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season for the American International and son of football legend George Weah.
This is the second loan signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of West Bromwich Albion winger and former RB Leipzig Oliver Burke.
In a statement released on Celtic’s official website, manager Brendan Rodgers said: “Timothy’s a young talent who is full international player. 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.”
