Celtic have signed under-23 Republic of Ireland national, Jonathan Afolabi, on a two year contract – Afolabi left Southampton after rejecting a new contract.

The 19-year-old was in the crowd at Parkhead at Celtic Park, as Celtic defeated Dunfermline 2-1 after extra-time in the Scottish League Cup.

Lennon said: “He’s here. He’s a young lad from Southampton, we’ve signed him on a free transfer and he’s one for development.

“He’s on the cusp, so he’ll come in and train with us and we’ll get a good look at him in a couple of weeks.

“Then we’ll decide what we want to with in terms of where his progression is.

“He had a great tournament in the Euros. He’s raw, but we feel he has good potential.”
