Celtic have announced the signing of Jeremie Frimpong on a four year deal from Manchester City.

Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Frimpong said: “It feels amazing to have joined Celtic. What a massive club to be part of. I’m just lucky to have been picked and I’m grateful for everything. I’m just happy to be here and I just want to get on the pitch and show the fans everything that I’ve got.

“I’m looking forward to start training with my new team-mates and getting to know them. They’ve got more experience than me, so I’m hoping they’ll be able to help me as a player.”

The 18-year-old right back has been on Celtic’s radar ever since he played for Manchester City’s Under-23 squad.

He added: "We played Celtic’s Under-23s and it wasn’t long after that I found out Celtic were interested in signing me. That was incredible, and as soon as I heard, I was excited and I wanted to take this opportunity.

“I started going on YouTube to watch Celtic, and when they were on TV, I watched the games. I watched Sunday’s match against Rangers. What a game! Celtic were brilliant and deserved to win.

“Now I can’t wait to play at Celtic Park in front of the fans. Hopefully when I get on the pitch and do something good, I’ll hear the noise for me.

“ I’m going to try my best to get in the squad and help them to win things. My target is to get as many games as I can, to win everything for the team and I’ll give it my all.”

While Frimpong is first and foremost a right back, the former Manchester City youngster can also play on the left of defence.
