The 21-year-old was greeted by Hoops ambassador Tosh McKinlay at Glasgow Airport earlier this morning, with various reports claiming he’ll join on a temporary 18-month contract from his employers at Stamford Bridge.
Despite being rated as one of the most promising young attackers in English football, Musonda has struggled to break into the Chelsea first-team under Antonio Conte and was an unused sub in yesterday’s 3-0 win over Newcastle in the FA Cup.
Conte and the Blues hierarchy will be hoping the nurturing eye of Brendan Rodgers can help Musonda to develop into a fully-fledged star – and Celtic’s fans simply can’t wait to see him in the iconic green and white jersey:
Musonda is different class. He will absolutely destroy the Scottish Prem ⚽️

Celtic to sign Charly Musonda on 18 month loan deal which is perfect. Had we actually bought him that's about the length of time he'd be here for before he was sold.

Happy with Musonda, hopefully get another 1 or 2 over the line ?

If Musonda can cross a ball like Tosh McKinlay then we are onto a winner.

Musonda in today and a keeper tomorrow will do for me! #Celtic

Wonder if Musonda Jnr will do the same as Sinclair v Hearts ?

Hope the #Musonda deal gets finalised, would certainly provide the much needed spark that has been missing for most of this season.

No a fan of loan signings but getting an absolute belter in Charley Musonda ???

Brilliant signing for both Celtic and Musonda. Got to question who he’d oust in the team. Forrest? McGregor? https://t.co/4iM2W8pupl

What do you make of Musonda arriving at Celtic? Should he be the last capture, or will they need more defensive reinforcements too?
