CELTIC have ended speculation about Karamoko Demble’s future by signing the player up on his first professional contract.
It is an initial three-year deal which will surely see the midfielder make the first team.
Karamoko has been making appeances for the developmental squad when he’s been eligible to do so this season and has impressed greatly.
The young lad who is still to decide his international career has at least settled his club ambitions.
There was real anxiety among the support about the player potentially being tapped up by an elite European club, but Dembele is keen to continue his progression with the club.
The player has chosen the number 77 as his first team squad number, and he will also be joining the first team on the Dubai winter training camp.
Welcome aboard Karamoko! It’s only a matter of time before he’s strutting his stuff on the hallowed Parkhead turf.
