Celtic are poised to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Timothy Weah on loan for the rest of the season.
Reports in France suggest that the teenager has agreed a move to the Hoops for the next six months with the player himself revealing on Instagram yesterday that he will be leaving PSG next month.
Fans on Twitter are excited by Weah’s arrival at Parkhead:
Think it’s just to tide us over till the end of the season. Either way it’s a cracking signing in a position we are short in. Even if we only get a right back from now I’ll be happy

Looks like a loan till the end of the season.
We are light on forwards- should be an exciting signing!
Along with Manny Perez – could be two Americans thru the end of the season. 🇺🇸
Also Matt Polster trained with Rangers last week. 😱

The American international has not made a first team appearance since August. He impressed many by scoring his first senior goal in the 4-0 win over Monaco in the French Super Cup, before coming on as a substitute to score in the first league game of the campaign against Caen.
Since then, however, he has made just one more appearance, when he started the 3-1 victory over Guingamp before being replaced at halftime. If he does move to Celtic Park, he may be a bit rusty before getting up to speed but the 18-year-old certainly has massive potential.
