    Celtic set to clinch deal for Southampton forward Afolabi

    CELTIC are set to confirm the signing of Southampton winger Jonathan Afolabi, Herald and Times Sport understands.

    The 20-year-old forward left the English Premier League side after being told he was surplus to requirements, and Celtic have beat a host of English clubs, Russia's Lokomotiv Moscow and Spanish side Real Valladolid to his signature.

    Afolabi represented Ireland at the under-19 European Championships this summer and is also eligible to play for Nigeria.

    Will this be a development squad signing?

    Really really good wee player from what I've seen of him..

    Came on and made an impact a few time's I'm sure..

    Quick and can play all the front three positions..

    Bit of a coup if we get him..

    He's an out and out striker. Big and physical. Can't see him playing as a winger

    Article has him as a winger as does other sources, but I’ll take your word for it.

    Seen him in the under 19 euros . Worked his socks off as our only striker. Maybe his work rate was increased as he was in the shop window. Held up play well. Put defenders under pressure, strong on ball and scored the first goal against the Czechs to put us through. Same game Coffey scored in. He would have been behind in my opinion Troy Parrott obafemi and idah at that age group as striker. He was shafted with a yellow in that game that ruled him out of semis .
