Celtic: Journalist reacts to Josh Dede deal

Celtic: Journalist reacts to Josh Dede deal -Celtic News

Celtic B reporter Lewis Laird has shared some exciting reaction to Josh Dede signing a professional Celtic contract.

The Lowdown: Dede profiled

Dede is just 16 years of age and is a right-sided full-back who appears to be making great strides in Glasgow.

He has already featured for Tommy McIntyre’s Celtic B side and has made significant progress in the club’s academy after joining in 2017.

Dede as now joined fellow youngster Daniel Kelly in penning professional terms with the club, with the Hoops fending off interest in the creative midfielder from Arsenal.

The Latest: Journalist reacts

Dede posted the news of his first professional Celtic Park deal on Instagram. Laird, who covers all things Celtic-related, but with a focus on B team and youth matters, relayed the news on Twitter and gave his thoughts on the announcement.

“Great to see another youngster signing their first professional deal with the club – this time, 16-year old right-back Josh Dede Has recently come into Tommy McIntyre’s Celtic B side and played in the back 4 regularly over the past month Congratulations to him.”

The Verdict: More good news

It seems as if the news of Ben Doak’s move to Liverpool has shot Celtic chiefs into action when it comes to offering other highly-rated youngsters professional terms.

Dede has now become the latest to do put pen to paper on a Parkhead deal after Kelly, and we wouldn’t be surprised if there was more to come before the summer.

Reports last month claimed that Celtic are rethinking their approach when it came to their academy talents, and we are starting to see signs of that with two new contracts.
