Celtic have pulled off an impressive coup by clinching the signing of Moussa Dembele from Fulham.

The Scottish side announced the deal on their official website, with Dembele officially becoming a Celtic player on July 1 once his Fulham contract expires.

 

While Fulham fans had been preparing for his exit, his eventual choice to move to Celtic seemed to come out of the blue and has been met with a mixed reaction.

Supporters were not shy in expressing their views via social media that Dembele should have moved to an English Premier League club, while others suggested simply that Celtic had signed an outstanding young talent.

Dembele scored into double figures for Celtic last season and without him, the west London side could easily have landed up being relegated.

At just 19, Celtic could prove to be an ideal club for him especially with the added intensity returning to the Scottish game thanks to Rangers' arrival back in the top flight.

The young striker also has Champions League football to look forward to with Celtic if they can get through the qualifiers, and as Brendan Rodgers' first signing, should get his fair share of opportunities to show what he can do.
