Chris Sutton has reacted to the news Celtic are set to sell one of their top youngsters in Jeremie Frimpong.

The news broke earlier today, the club had accepted a bid for the young right-back and he was abroad looking to finalise the deal.

Since then, it has emerged, Bayer Leverkusen is the club involved in the deal and a fee of £11.5m.

Chris Sutton believes that’s great business on the face of it.

Last season Jeremie burst onto the scene but this term he hasn’t been at his best. To get that sort of money for a young player is too good to turn down from a Celtic point of view.

If we can add a sell-on clause then it’s a terrific bit of business.

Manchester City will be due some of the cash for this deal, having let the defender move to Glasgow 18 months ago for a very small fee.
