    Swedish wonderkid Niclas Eliasson has spoken in glowing terms about his trial with Celtic.

    The 17-year-old plays for Falkenberg in the Swedish Second Division and is attracting attention from across Europe.

    Dubbed the Samba Swede, Eliasson has a unique background spliting his time between Sweden and Brazil as his football skills develop.

    “It went really well,” he told leading Swedish newspaper Expressen about his Celtc trial. “Things felt goodl from the first training session, I also played in a small tournament which we won and I scored most of the goals.

    “Celtic also wanted me to go to a tournament in Quatar but that wasn’t possible. They were happy with me and I enjoyed being there. Their season is finished just now so we’ll see what happens."

    “Being at Celtic was similar to the way things were organised at Arsenal, both clubs have good set ups, the training complex at Celtic is quite new. I spoke with Mikel Lustig when I was there and also Bahrudin (Atajic).”

    Eliasson’s unique background of Swedish father and Brazilian mother has allowed him to develop his skills mixing the best of both nations.

    Every year when the Swedish winter bites he heads to Brazil splitting his development between Falkenberg and Porto de Barra.

    Eliasson explained: “I’ve always gone to Brazil over the winter so I have a pretty clear idea of ??what it takes to succeed, there’s a big difference between the two countries.

    “When it’s raining in our winter I’m on the beach training in Brazil where the football is very different.

    “I’m happy for now playing for Falkenberg and getting first team football. I’m not sure what the next step will be, maybe Holland would be the best country for me.

    “Spain, Italy or England would be good, in England football has changed, smaller technical players get their chance but I feel that Holland could be the next step for me.”
    Falkenberg are currently sitting in second place in the Superetten (Second Division) with Eliasson starting all ten matches this season.

    That's also a * poor sample to judge a player on. When was the last time we signed an under 18 year old who ended up making the grade?

    I wouldn't really call this a link. He came for a weeks trial, but it doesn't say we are looking to sign him, or that he has any intention of seeking a move here.

    True, always forget we got him from Airdrie.

    Hopefully he gets more games next season.

    He signed for them a couple of weeks ago, his agent at the time said that Celtic as well as other clubs wanted to sign him but the player just felt AIK was the best move for him at the moment.
