Done Deal: Celtic sign “delighted” Arsenal attacker on three-year deal

Celtic have signed Arsenal promising youngster, Armstrong Okoflex, who hails from Dublin and played for Tolka Rovers before he was spotted by Arsenal five years ago.

The 16-year-old attacker, who can be deployed both on the left and winger or even as a striker, registered seven appearances for the Gunners u18s last season, scoring one goal and one assists.

The winger has also represented both England and Ireland at several youth levels.

He said:

“Ireland is where I’m from but England is financially better and the grounds are amazing.

“I enjoy playing with both but obviously I’m Irish so I feel the connection with them.”

Okoflex only turned 16 in March and had trials with West Ham and Tottenham before opting to sign for Arsenal when he was just 11.

Neither Arsenal nor Celtic have confirmed the move at the time of writing.
