Jeremie Frimpong offered a glimpse into his frightening potential with a brilliant Premiership debut for Celtic this past weekend.

Neil Lennon's side thumped Ross County 6-0 at Parkhead and a wonderful attacking display from the teenage right-back got Hoops fans talking afterwards.

The 18-year-old, who grabbed a brilliant assist for James Forrest's goal, hasn't been seen much since his deadline-day switch from Manchester City.

But it does certainly look like Celtic have a proper gem on their hands - and the best thing is that the Premier League champions don't have a buy-back clause.

 

According to Manchester Evening News., the Bhoys only paid £350,000 up front for the full-back and City didn't include a buy-back clause in the deal.

That being said, Celtic will only get 70 percent of a transfer fee if they ultimately sell him on for big money somewhere down the line, with City owning a 30 percent sell-on clause.

Still, Frimpong looks an exceptional bargain by Lennon and Head of Football Operations Nick Hammond.

On a football level and a business one, Celtic benefit greatly if Frimpong develops into a serious player.
