The 16-year-old earned the contract after impressing during a three-week trial at the Hoops. The teenager can (reportedly) operate as a winger or as a wing-back on either side.

The youngster is also claimed to be friends with Billy Gilmour. The teenage midfielder joined Premier League giants Chelsea from Scottish Premiership club Rangers earlier this summer for a development fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £500,000.
