OFFICIAL: Celtic complete the signing of EPL young prospect

According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea prodigy, Charly Musonda has joined the Scottish champions Celtic on an 18-month loan deal.

Musonda arrived in London from Anderlecht back in 2012 as one of the most promising youngsters in Europe.

The 21-year-old winger is known for his exquisite technical skills and devastating pace. He already demonstrated his potential with Real Betis last season.

However, the Belgium U-21 international has experienced a difficult first half of the season at Stamford Bridge, struggling to find the space next to Pedro, Eden Hazard, and Willian.

Therefore, manager Antonio Conte has decided to send him on loan and help him to develop his potential.

The Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has been trying to bolster his attacking department since the beginning of January, as Moussa Dembele future hangs in the balance, and Scott Sinclair is yet to return from injury.

Musonda is expected to help the Scottish side in Europe, as Celtic are going to face Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League knockout stage.
