Timothy Weah looks like being the first January addition to the Celtic squad after Brendan Rodgers revealed that the 18-year-old American has already had a look around Lennoxtown.

An under-wraps visit to the club’s training base took place earlier this month with the PSG player on the cusp now of completing a loan move to Celtic.

“We were granted permission by PSG to speak with him and he came over with his representatives,” said Rodgers.

“He had a great day here. We have good relations with PSG, so he came over.

“He sent me a lovely message afterwards thanking everyone and saying that he enjoyed it, so we shall see.

“They clearly want him to go on loan to get experience, so he is a good kid, a great boy and a great profile in terms of his game.

“There are lots of selling factors for him to come here.

“The club, the supporters, the intensity, the pressure, the style of football and people that he knows.

“There’s many plusses that can help in the decision.

“He’s a great boy with sensible head. He knows what he wants, he’s an international player who can play in a couple of positions at the top of the field, so if it comes off, it can be a great signing for us.

“We’ll just see how that develops.

“I said to him: We have to do what we did with Ryan Christie! I said we had a player here who was once Charlie Christie’s son and now he’s Ryan Christie’s dad. So our job with you is to make him [George] Timothy Weah’s dad!”
