OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Celtic Confirm Charly Musonda Arrival on an 18-month loan deal

Celtic have officially announced the signing of Chelsea attacking midfielder Charly Musonda on an 18-month loan deal.

The midfielder arrived at Celtic Park on a loan deal to strengthen manager Brendan Rodgers’ attacking options for the rest of this season and the following campaign.

Musonda ply his trade outside the Stamford Bridge with La Liga side Real Betis last season, but chose to stay at Chelsea last summer to fight for his place under Italian boss Antonio Conte.

However, the Belgium star has found opportunities at the Bridge limited and was wanted by a number of clubs on loan this month. The 21-year-old has now headed to Celtic, where he will hope to nail a regular playing role under Rodgers.

Celtic announced:

“Celtic are delighted to announce that highly-rated attacking midfielder, Charly Musonda, has joined the club on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea.

“The Belgian Under-21 internationalist has been a much sought-after player in this transfer window, with many of Europe’s top clubs keen to take him on loan.

The club added:

“However, both the player and his parent club believe that his football development will be best served at Celtic Park under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.”

Celtic are next in action on Tuesday night against Hearts, while it remains to be seen whether Musonda will be the final signing made by the Glasgow club in the current transfer window, which shuts on Wednesday night.
