Official : Nigerian Striker's Jersey Number Revealed As Celtic Announce Signing
Scottish champions Celtic have announced the signing of Nigeria-eligible striker Jonathan Afolabi on a three-year deal.

A Republic of Ireland U19 international, Afolabi last played for the youth team of Premier League side Southampton.

In his first words as a Celtic player, Afolabi said : ''It’s been great so far. This is a big move for me and everything has been going well so far.

''The boys have been very welcoming, the fans have been great as well, and I’m delighted to be part of this family now. I can’t wait to drive forward from here.

''I know Luca Connell from when we travelled to Russia to play in the European Qualifiers for the Ireland Under-19s, and I likewise know Barry Coffey from the international set-up too.''

Jonathan Afolabi links up with former Arsenal striker of Nigerian parentage Armstrong Okoflex at Celtic.

The 19-year-old will play with the number 24 jersey in the 2019-2020 season.
