CELTIC looked to have signed Arsenal Starlet Armstrong Okoflex after a fan caught a glimpse of the player holding up a Celtic shirt pitchside at Celtic Park.
The 16-year-old had a trial with the club last month and it looks like Brendan Rodgers has decided to sign the player
Armstrong is an attacker and was expected to sign a new youth deal with Arsenal until now.
Gunners youth blogger Jeorge Bird the player “possesses excellent close control and is a fine finisher”.
Armstrong has also played for the Irish under 16 side and is eligible for both Ireland and England.
It’s unlikely this is anything other than a signing for the future. He could make a first team breakthrough around the same time as Karamoko Dembele – now that’s exciting!
