Celtic have been looking to bolster their attack during the winter break and it appears that the first week of January has been rather successful.
The Bhoys have already added Timothy Weah and Oliver Burke to their ranks and it seems a third player has been confirmed as a Hoop.
The club’s official Twitter account has revealed that Vakoun Issouf Bayo has sealed a switch to the Scottish Premiership champions.

The Ivorian has joined from Slovakian outfit Dunajska Streda on a four-year deal after impressing for his former employers.
The 21-year-old has netted 18 goals in his 23 appearances and Celtic will be hoping that he can continue that form as they look to overcome the challenge from Old Firm rivals Rangers.
Bayo could be an excellent addition for Celtic and will hope he can be a real difference to the side and their chances of retaining their Scottish Premiership title.
The 21-year-old comes into the setup at Celtic Park at a great time as Odsonne Edouard is the only senior recognised striker available, with Leigh Griffiths taking time away from the game.
Celtic have also done well to get the deal over the line at this early stage, as it will give the Ivorian a great chance to get settled ahead of their return to action in just over a week’s time.
