Is Karamoko Dembele Set For a Celtic Debut This Month?

Karamoko Dembele could be set for a Celtic debut this month after training with the first team.

The 15-year-old burst on the scene aged just 13 after starring for the Hoops at a youth tournament.

Dembele has been on the books at Parkhead since 2013 and he made headlines across the world after starring for the Hoops development squad when he was just 13.

The youngster signed his first professional contract on Christmas Eve, commiting to the club until 2021.

And he now looks like he could be in line for a first-team debut after training with the first-team squad.

Dembele turns 16 on February 22 and could feature at some point for the first team.

Brendan Rodgers handed Raheem Sterling his debut at the same age before the winger went on to star at Liverpool and earn a £50million move to Manchester City.
