Celtic On Verge of Stealing One of Arsenal’s Most Talented Youngsters

Celtic On Verge of Stealing One of Arsenal’s Most Talented Youngsters

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.
