Celtic appear on the verge of stealing Armstrong Oko-Flex from under the nose of Arsenal.
The highly-rated 16-year-old has been with the Gunners for the last year since signing for them from Irish boys’ club St Kevin’s FC.
He made seven appearances for their Under-18 team last year, making an impact with one goal and an assist.
But it looks like Oko-Flex has decided his future lies elsewhere after deciding to swap English football for a crack at Scotland with Celtic’s academy.
At 16, players can sign youth contracts with clubs – giving Celtic the opportunity to steal in for the Irish youth international.
And based on some brilliant work from some eagle-eyed Hoops fans around Celtic Park over the last day, it looks like that’s what has happened:

As well as that video and image, another supporter caught a glimpse of Oko-Flex holding the Celtic jersey with his name on the back inside the stadium:

So you can expect an announcement to be made by the Hoops sometime soon.
