The 21-year-old Ivorian is currently playing for Israeli side Bnei Yehuda and, as we told you yesterday, was thought to have played his final match for the club in last night’s 1-0 Israel State Cup win over Hapoel Afula.

Celtic completed the signing of striker Patryk Klimala earlier this week, but the 2-1 defeat at home to arch enemies Rangers on December 29 underlined Lennon’s need to add reinforcements during the January transfer window.
