    Celtic delighted to sign Charly Musonda on 18-month loan deal

    By: Newsroom Staff on 29 Jan, 2018 20:45

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that highly-rated attacking midfielder, Charly Musonda, has joined the club on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea.

    The Belgian Under-21 internationalist has been a much sought-after player in this transfer window, with many of Europe’s top clubs keen to take him on loan. However, both the player and his parent club believe that his football development will be best served at Celtic Park under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.

    The Celtic manager is a long-time admirer of Charly Musonda, and is delighted to have added the 21-year-old to his first team squad. Charly came through the youth ranks at Anderlecht before joining Chelsea back in 2012.

    He has made seven appearances for the Chelsea first-team, scoring one goal in a League Cup win over Nottingham Forest last September, while he also spent a year on loan with Real Betis in Spain.

    Everyone at Celtic welcomes Charly to the club and wishes him every success during his time with the green and white Hoops.

    Reaction from Charly Musonda and Brendan Rodgers to follow on the official Celtic website.
