Oliver Burke has posted a message to the Celtic support this morning with the news he has signed on-loan for the club.
Celtic announced the deal which is subject to a medical on Saturday morning.
Burke, who has been frustrated with his lack of game time at West Brom can’t wait to get started and sent a message to that effect on his social media!
Delighted to join @CelticFC for the rest of the season. Can’t wait to get started! Looking forward to playing in Scotland 🏴

Burke will provide competition for Celtic’s wide men and give Celtic just something a little bit different.
The young Scottish midfielder has pace to burn and will be a very handy asset during the second half of the season.
Although from Scotland, the player has never actually played in Scottish Football. The midfielder came through the ranks at Nottingham Forest before making a big money move to Leipzig in Germany a few years back.
After a season in Germany, Burke came back to the UK and signed for West Brom on another big money transfer.
If anyone can get the best out of Burke, it’s most certainly Brendan Rodgers.
