Celtic hopeful of loan deal for Timothy Weah

Celtic hopeful of loan deal for Timothy Weah

Celtic have been the dominant force in the Scottish Premiership over the past month, but they couldn’t get the better of Rangers in the Old Firm clash earlier on today. 

The Hoops will be looking to make the most of the January transfer window, as this could have a huge say on how the title race pans out. Interestingly, it appears as if Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a possible addition, as according to Sky Sports, Celtic are hopeful of signing Timothy Weah on loan.

Indeed, Celtic are hopeful of agreeing a loan deal for Timothy Weah.

If the move goes through, the 18-year-old forward would join Celtic in time for their winter break training camp, which begins in Dubai on January 6.

And, the two clubs have recent history of doing business together, with Celtic taking striker Odsonne Edouard on loan from PSG last season, so it may be easy to strike a deal.

THE VERDICT:

Timothy Weah, who is valued at £4.5 million (by Transfermarkt), has all the ingredients to follow on his dad’s footsteps, George Weah, if he can secure regular minutes, which is what a January loan move to Celtic would provide for him. And, having already made great strides on the international stage with the United States of America, it’s clear to see he’s the real deal.

Indeed, the Hoops are currently lacking in attacking options, so this is a sensible move by Rodgers.
