  • Celtic sign Jeremie Frimpong on four-year deal from Manchester City

    Celtic sign Jeremie Frimpong on four-year deal from Manchester City

  • CELTIC are delighted to have signed Jeremie Frimpong on a four-year contract from Manchester City. And the talented young defender is looking forward to meeting up with his new team-mates this week and starting to train with the Scottish champions.

    Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Jeremie 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 is a speedy and energetic right-back, and will wear the No.30 jersey for the Treble Treble winners. And he explained that he found out about Celtic’s interest in signing him after a Manchester City game against the Hoops.

    "We played Celtic’s Under-23s and it wasn’t long after that I found out Celtic were interested in signing me,” he explained. “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.”

    And Jeremie explained that he’s already spoken to Celtic boss, Neil Lennon.

    “The manager phoned me today and told me that he believes in me and he thinks that what I can do will be good for the team,” he said. “That’s really good to hear, and 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.”
