Celtic officially announced the signing of striker
The Hoops reportedly paid £2m for the 21-year-old, making him the Scottish champion’s first permanent deal of the January transfer window, following the loan arrivals of Oli Burke and Timo Weah.
Bayo has hit the back of the net 18 times this season in the Slovakian league for Dunajska Streda, and a fan has shared a compilation of goals that the Ivorian has scored:

Of course, it is easy to make any player look good in a Youtube video, and many will be highly anticipating his first appearance for Brendan Rodgers’ side in the coming weeks.
The Scottish Premiership will be a step up in quality for Bayo, and it will be interesting to see if he is as prolific in Scotland as he was in Slovakia.
